A profound school education is the key to prosperity and to avoiding quarrel and war. If school books and other educational media were available in open source, this would be a desirable support for poor countries' people. For such material to be offered for free worldwide by Wikimedia could help a lot.

I would definitely like to work on this. I am working on some books for GlobalText.org. There is also wikibooks.org - how is this proposal different from either of those? Daviddoria 18:07, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
