Can We Afford Free Textbooks?<https://www.insidehighered.com/views/2017/03/27/colleges-should-focus-keeping-students-college-not-free-textbooks-essay?utm_source=Inside+Higher+Ed&utm_campaign=709105f05b-DNU20170327&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1fcbc04421-709105f05b-198547921&mc_cid=709105f05b&mc_eid=6501d4b863>
When it comes to student success, “new” open resources ultimately do little more than further entrench an ineffective status quo, argues Robert S. Feldman.
