Support open education and defend the knowledge commons

Knowledge, information and education should be a public good, free and accessible to all regardless of citizens' social or economic background or status. Against those who wish to privatise and commodify education Greens should support efforts to defend, deepen and extend the knowledge commons by supporting efforts to provide open access and open educational resources. This includes open textbooks which are already saving students many thousands of dollars a year as well as providing opportunities for greater academic freedom and allowing others to re-use, revise, remix and redistribute educational materials.
