I think this article does not require a login, and I wanted to pass it on as it's indirectly relevant to the Sage education community, since Sage itself (and certainly the many texts it supports) is an open educational resource.


A possibly not-representative quote:

"OER is not closing the achievement gap for underserved populations in math. A product like Pearson offers much more powerful resources, metrics, and both student and instructor use advantages compared to any OER courseware availability in math."
