Reader To Reader Receives $78,000 in Math Textbooks

We are working the phones calling community colleges in poor communities across the country this week. On Friday we have received a very generous donation of $78,000 in brand new math textbooks.

The textbook, Basic Mathematics, was donated by its author, Steve Slavin.

As described by the publisher, the textbook is a standard basic mathematics textbook used primarily in community colleges. It covers everything from basic arithmetic to percentages, ratios, proportions, signed numbers, and introductory geometry.

Schools across the country will receive hundreds of textbooks completely free of charge, including shipping.

We want to thank Mr. Slavin for his continued generosity as several years ago he had donated several hundred thousand dollars worth of textbooks which put free textbooks into the hands of thousands of students.
