E-Rate advocates: More funding for internet connections
from eSchool News
As the deadline to submit comments to the Federal Communications Commission on ways to improve the federal E-Rate program wrapped up on Sept. 16, ed-tech advocacy groups and associations made final attempts to emphasize how crucial adequate high-speed broadband connections are for teaching and learning. Coinciding with the comment deadline is the release of a Consortium for School Networking study revealing that 99 percent of the 450 K-12 districts surveyed need greater internet bandwidth within the next 36 months, and 93 percent of districts believe the current E-Rate program does not meet their needs.
