E-rate and Classroom Broadband Access
CoSN Responds to FCC Net Neutrality Vote
CoSN CEO Keith Krueger today issued the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) new net neutrality proceeding: “As the voice for school system technology leaders, CoSN calls on the FCC to carefully evaluate the impact of net neutrality regulations on classrooms and other digital learning opportunities. Our nation must ensure that students and teachers are not left behind on the Internet because others can pay for faster broadband. Ensuring that the Internet stimulates and nurtures learning innovations is a top priority for CoSN and our members, and this requires robust broadband at the lowest cost to achieve the President’s vision of ConnectED.”
One of the central goals of our work at CoSN is to ensure that all students and educators have robust and equitable internet access. We are very aware of the problems that could arise if net neutrality regulations are carried out sloppily. Stay tuned to the CoSN Advocacy Network for more updates on what the FCC is doing as it continues to overhaul the E-rate.
