IT'S RIGHT TO REBEL: Students are "rebelling" against rising textbook prices in a variety of ways, according to the Book Industry Study Group's ongoing survey "Student Attitudes Toward Content in Higher Education." Less than 60% of surveyed students purchased up-to-date editions of books. 25% "occasionally" resort to the photocopier, with 4.1% "frequently" doing so. 11% turn to textbook rental services like Kno and Chegg (among the survey's sponsors). Here's more info from the press release which boasts more data about market trends, but the survey's hefty price tag leaves it out of reach for most.
