Schools may be scrambling to install cutting edge technology, but research suggests that books still offer better value.
"It is surprising that books matter," says Steve Hurd, the research leader from the Open University, in The Times Educational Supplement (May 19). Hurd and his team had not expected the amount spent on books to impact on results. But they found that average test scores for Key Stage 2 pupils in schools that spent £100 per pupil on books rose by 1.5 per cent. booktrade.info Booktrade.info 5/24/06
