Fill out the form below to add your name to the statement of support and help build the movement for open textbooks.
Textbook prices are out of control and have become a serious obstacle to the affordability of a college education. The textbook market is rigged so that publishers can generate huge profits and engage in bad practices at students’ expense.
Fortunately, we have solutions to this problem in the form of “open textbooks”— high-quality books that are published under and open license and available to students for free.
As a member of my student government, I support the use of open textbooks and urge my college and colleges across the country to support the use of open textbooks when academically appropriate.
