  •  My husband is a HS teacher (none)
    He teaches at a fairly wealthy school, but he teaches CS, which changes rather rapidly (certainly moreso than any other subject taught in the math department!), so they don't have the budget to upgrade textbooks as often as he needs them.  He needs to upgrade to a new textbook for next year, and has decided to go w/ a book that has just come out w/ a new edition.  Except that he's planning to use the just-become-obsolete edition (I'm not sure if this is to save money or because he prefers it).  He's been spending the last couple of months looking for the book as copies come up at sites like half.com, and when they're a good price he pounces on them (the school will reimburse him -- at prices like these they can handle it!).  At this point, he only needs a couple more for his whole classroom.

    It sucks that it has to be this way, but at least he's getting his books.
