A Broken Market

Research by the U.S. PIRG Education Fund and the 2012 Florida Textbook Study found that "65% of student consumers have opted out of buying a college textbook due to its high price," and 94% of those students know they suffer academically from that decision.

At OpenIntro, we're working to disrupt one of the least-free markets you can find. Teachers choose the textbook, but students pay for it, meaning only teachers can stop sky-high textbook prices. It's our mission create high-quality yet inexpensive textbooks, which inherently have significant educational advantages over expensive textbooks.
