How to Make Textbooks More Affordable

textbooks toolkitWe’re excited to announce the release of our newest campaign resource, a toolkit for our Making Textbooks Affordable program.

The high cost of textbooks has 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, most notably in the form of “open textbooks” – high-quality books that are available online for free or for a very low cost in print. With solutions like these, we can break the publishers’ stranglehold on the market and help make higher education more accessible to everyone.

Our new toolkit provides the resources that student governments need in order to bring open textbooks to their campuses and save students money. Download it today!
