Thanks Marmor!

Don't forget The Gutenberg Project. They offer a lot of free books, text and audio, including a lot of famous classics now in the public realm. (There are even some textbooks available.)

If you are a self-learner and are interested in studying college level classes for free, check this out:
ocw.mit.edu

That's right. MIT, the prestigious American University offers over two hundred college level courses for free. You won't earn college creits, but it is a great way to get a leg up on courses you plan to take in the future. Many of the courses can be taken without buying a text book, but for those that do, the older used text books used by the courses can be bought on line for a few dollars, rather than the hundreds of dollars they cost new.

My favorite courses are those which offer the lectures on video. For example:

and:

LOL Mentalthink.

In America, I think we have the same problem but with us it isn't some Government leader to blame, it is education as a for-profit industry. In a way, our educated workers are expected to 'pay' and pay a LOT to get a job. The education system is so expensive that young students here have to carry a lifetime of debt just to get their education; with no guarantee of any job when they finish and after they are buried in debt. The cost of a college education is getting so high it will often destroy the finances of the students, their parents, even their grandparents. The days where you could work your way through college on a minimum wage job is long gone.
