"Textbook Rebellion" To Launch Cross-Country Tour

 

On Wednesday, August 31st, the "Textbook Rebellion," a national coalition for affordable college textbooks, will join the Student PIRGs, students, faculty and an official from   the U.S. Department of Education for a press conference at the University of Maryland College Park to kick off a six-week cross-country tour.

“This fall we will be going to 14 states across the country-40 campuses because prices have been rising 4 times the rate of inflation for the last two decades and we are starting to get to the point where most students don’t buy their textbooks,” explained Textbook Rebellion Advocate Nicole Allen.

Over the next six weeks, the Textbook Rebellion aims to collect 10,000 petition signatures and distribute cost-saving tips, calling on decision makers to prioritize open textbooks, which will reduce the cost of textbooks by 80%.
