Frankly, if we're ever going to break free from high prices, we need an
alternative outside the traditional market.

That's where open textbooks come in. Open textbooks are faculty-written and
peer-reviewed just like traditional books, only they're published under an
open license. That means that instead of the publisher controlling who,
what and how their material is used, the book is free and open to the
public (and available in print for $10-40).
