Textbook aid expanded
Erin Schmidtke, Session Weekly, April 6, 2012 –
State aid for textbook purchases made by schools now may extend to software and other educational technology.
The statute requires that these materials, as currently required of books, must be secular, non-ideological and neutral in tone. Gov. Mark Dayton signed this into law March 30. The new law takes effect July 1, 2012.
