ISTE Members Petition FCC to support ConnectEd initiative

7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM

The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE®) delivered a petition to the three current Commissioners of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) urging them to take action to “accomplish the goals of the ConnectEd initiative to ensure that all of our nation’s classrooms have high speed broadband connectivity and all educators have the professional learning and access to digital resources they need for students to compete in the global 21st century economy.”

Initiated by ISTE and signed by more than 1,700 educators from across the United States, the petition applauds President Obama for his ConnectEd initiative, which aims to connect 99 percent of U.S. students to the internet through high-speed broadband and high-speed wireless within five years. The petition specifically urges FCC Acting Chairwoman Clyburn, Commissioner Rosenworcel and Commissioner Pai to consider increased investment in the successful E-Rate program to accomplish ConnectEd’s goals.
