I answer this in the affirmative: "Would the cause of open be better served if we go further in this direction, and stop talking about 'open' as a goal and instead focus on using it as a tactic to support allies who care about authentic, engaged, accessible, sustainable, and relevant public education?" In Sausalito last week one person said that people were convinced to adopt OERs only when pointed out that they help the students learn. And I kept talking about the reason why we support open education and open educational resources. I think that this may create some divisions in the movement, as talking about objectives will cleave the publishers and the educators. But I think that's a good thing.
