textbooks are honestly waste of money and students will learn more/should learn more if professors lecture more rather than following textbooks.
Textbooks should just be reinforcement. A good teacher truly doesn't need a textbook nor should they rely on answer booklets. Learning should be hands-on; not taught by a book (otherwise there is no purpose of a teacher).
Textbooks are supposed to be for reinforcement and should not be required.
The purpose of textbooks is to teach children a concept. It will teach the student something in a different way than what is being taught in class. In other words, it allows students to hear another perspective. It's also in a more organized format.

I disagree with Derek. Textbooks shouldn't be something that a teacher relies in. If they're a good teacher, then the students will pay attention and learn. If the class is fun/interactive and being taught in the simplest form possible, then you don't need a textbook. Only bad or mediocre teachers need their students to use textbooks.
Textbooks stress things that a teacher may not. Sometimes teachers think somethings are important--some things that the textbook left out and sometimes teachers think somethings aren't important--some things that the textbook put in there. Sometimes the textbook says things that are wrong. The textbooks should be meant as a guideline for what the curriculum should be like.
Instead of saying 'read chapters 1-6' and basically forcing the students to memorize the material and making them read a boring textbook, you could play a fun game that actally teaches students. Teach students that learning can be fun.
Textbooks also make the simplest concept the most complex thing.
