Free online materials could save schools billions

"Although open teaching materials have been available at the university level for a while now, there have been very few materials for younger learners. That's beginning to change now with the advent of Free-Reading, a free, wiki-based resource for early literacy instruction. The availability of free materials could free up millions of dollars from school budgets for more teachers and training.

It's awaiting approval by Eric Smith, the state's incoming education commissioner, who could approve it by mid-December.
