College textbook costs have skyrocketed at 4 times inflation affecting students, families, and professors alike. Affordable textbook solutions are needed!
We the undersigned believe the following:
- Textbooks should be affordable. Publishers should stop raising prices unfairly and offer a way to access each textbook for $30 or less per term without lowering quality.
- High-quality, affordable textbooks already exist in many subjects. Professors can reduce costs by considering these options.
- Open textbooks are an ideal solution, because they can be freely accessed, adapted and printed at a low cost. Decision-makers should prioritize support for open textbooks.
A compiled list of petition signatures will be delivered to college administrators and legislators to promote affordable textbook solutions.
- Professors don’t like soaring prices, either! Send an email to faculty at my school on my behalf letting them know how they can join the affordable textbooks movement.
A compiled petition of signatures will be delivered to college admins and legislators.
TextbookRebellion.org is a movement of organizations and individuals affected by the high cost of textbooks and is inspired to take action against skyrocketing college textbook prices. The textbook publishing industry is broken. TextbookRebellion.org is raising awareness of the problem of textbook affordability and seeking solutions, like open-license textbooks.
