A ‘Promising Start for ConnectED,’ Says CoSN’s Krueger

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) CEO Keith Krueger today released the following statement applauding the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) order to begin work on President Obama’s ‘ConnectED’ – a national education initiative to connect 99 percent of America’s students to the Internet:

“Only a little over one month since President Obama announced his bold agenda, we are encouraged by the FCC’s steps to make ‘ConnectED’ a reality in classrooms nationwide. The sooner we raise E-Rate’s annual cap and equip schools with increased bandwidth, the sooner students will reap the benefits of true 21st century teaching and learning environments. This initiative moves our schools in that direction. We applaud the FCC and the Administration for making education technology a national priority, and we welcome this promising start for ConnectED.”
