Whereas the price of higher education is a major barrier to the success of community college students;

and whereas the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources (CCCOER) is an effort that will work to provide textbooks available to California Community College Students and others for free;
and whereas the CCCOER was founded by Foothill De Anza community college district;
Be it resolved that the California Mathematics Council, Community Colleges (CMC3) support the organizations and goals of the CCCOER and the CCOT.
