Example: Sold on campus, the book I need for Nutrition (last year's edition, new) is $154.84. Yet the same edition is $99.98 on Amazon or even $35 on Bookbyte. As an impoverished need-based student at a state school, I am thankful that I am lucky enough to get federal aid; however, this also prevents me from buying my books outside the campus store. With all the political issues our country now faces, I know this is small potatoes- but it still combines into millions of wasted tax dollars and overstuffed publisher's pockets.
Does it make anyone else angry that so many tax dollars are so poorly looked after when it comes to for-profit educational institutions?
