President Calls for Modernization of the E-rate Program

President Obama announced on June 6, 2013 a new initiative called ConnectED with the goal of connecting 99% of America’s students to the Internet through high speed broadband and wireless access within 5 years. He has called on the FCC to modernize the E-rate program to meet this goal. ConnectED also calls on other federal agencies and public and private partnerships to train teachers and to provide new technology resources to teachers and students for digital learning.

Further details about ConnectEd can be found here.

FCC Commissioner Rosenworcel has released a statement in support of President Obama’s ConnectED initiative, and Senator Rockefeller has added his voice in support of the FCC to reform the E-rate program. FCC Acting Chairwoman Clyburn also applauds President Obama’s Vision for E-rate Reform.
