rekrutacja writes "Today polish government accepted "Digital School" pilot program, which includes "e-Textbooks" component. With 15 million USD funding component intends to create CC BY licensed educational materials covering all educational needs and making traditional, paper textbooks superficial. This came after years-long efforts of Open Education Coalition and its members to persuade policy makers, that Open Educational Resources are a way to go. Last months have been especially eventful, as free textbooks part of the program was dropped by Ministry of Education and reinstated again on Prime Minister Office level."
