Schools Shift to Free, Public-Domain Curricula - Leslie Brody, Wall Street Journal

The Mentor Public School district in suburban Ohio hasn’t bought textbooks since 2012, when it spent more than $1 million on them. Its leaders hope to stop paying for textbooks altogether. They want teachers in this district for 7,700 students to use free materials available online as much as possible. Teachers are cooking up their own classes in economics, government and high school English, without off-the-shelf commercial products. https://www.wsj.com/articles/schools-shift-to-free-public-domain-textbooks-1490897412
