The new, free way of learning for teachers, students and parents

It was interesting to read recently that one of the first things that will change as a result of the debate involving Charter and Public Schools in New York will be the opening up of resource material to everyone for free. If all goes according to plan, resource and reference material will be available for everyone to see instead of being the reference library for those who could afford it. Knowing how most governing bodies enjoy their rhetoric and tend to drag their feet when it comes to putting their money where their mouth is, we'll have to wait and see if and when that happens. ...  More
