US states are as different as foreign countries when it comes to education policy, planning and budgets. This talk examines major statewide K-12 OER initiatives and how they came to be. Each state's unique barriers and successes are examined, as is the interplay between policy and practice. The role of the individual OER champion is reviewed as a primary driver in stimulating successful OER policy and implementation.

This research is part of a fellowship-based research study for the OER Research Hub (Open University, UK).
