The Power and Promise of OER is the Democratization of Education - Matthew Lynch, Tech Edvocate

OER also makes it possible to keep resource-poor and underserved schools on a more equitable playing field. Complaints about out-of-date textbooks are a perennial problem for poorer schools, but OER helps to bridge that gap. Especially in STEM subjects, this is an important aspect of democratization. Groups such as CK12 mean that no student will need to rely on out-of-date texts. While there are still challenges, OER presents opportunities to democratize education that simply have no historical parallel.
