Remarks FAILED - This would be too difficult to implement.
Whereas Tuition at UTA is increasing every semester, and books are not covered in tuition; and
Whereas Some professors have 5 or more required textbooks for their class and the price of these text books can become really expensive, especially when combined with the rest of a student's books; and
Whereas These textbooks are not always utilized in the course.
Be It Further Resolved That Professors have a 3 required textbook limit, for each course, and any additional texts will be considered recommended texts.
