End Price Gouging of College Textbooks

This petition had 488 supporters

College students struggle to find the means to pay for their extensive education every year. For many, almost every penny earned goes straight to paying for college tuition, housing and fees and there is little to no money left for basic school supplies. It is time that we ease the burden for college students and put federal regulations on the price of the most required school supply, college textbooks. Many students are having to pay hundreds and hundreds of dollars just to buy books that are often required for class. Some classes cannot be completed without owning a copy of the textbook forcing students to dig into their empty pockets to cover the prohibitive costs. Knowing that students are often forced to buy the textbooks, companies charge egregious amounts of money for these books. This is  completely unfair to the young Americans of this country and we need to make change. Sign this petition to make the leaders of this country aware that we want price gouging of college textbooks to end and that we support the accesibilty of  basic needs for an American college education.
