The State of Washington sends $64,344,99.66 from Olympia to 295 school districts per year to outfit 1,034,153 students with textbooks.

An apple to apple comparison of cost per textbook, shows it will cost about $6 for Open Education Resources instead of $120-plus for proprietary, commercial textbooks.   –   The Year of Open Educational Resources
