Textbooks

Fixing the Broken Textbook Market, Third Edition

This national survey of more than 5,000 college students was taken in September 2020, and builds on similar surveys from 2013 and 2019. It offers a snapshot in time of student experiences, particularly those at four-year institutions, in the first full semester of the pandemic and points out more long-term problems that institutions and national leaders must work to solve.

Testimony in Opposition to H.1249 and S.770

While we commend the stated objectives of the bill to reduce the cost of textbooks and make college more affordable, we feel the mechanisms in the bill are duplicative of work currently being done by the Dept of Higher Ed’s OER Working Group and urge you to consider those findings when their work has completed before moving this bill.
