Re: “Free schools mean what?

Prior to about 1970, at least some Arkansas high schools required students to buy textbooks (much like colleges do now). I remember this because my sister, who graduated in 1975 and is older than me, had to buy books one year and the next year they started providing free books so she was "stuck" with some of them. My memory is that this only applied to high schools--the grade schools provided free books.
