Today, the Learning First Alliance (LFA), a partnership of 15 leading education associations representing more than 10 million parents, educators and policymakers, released a statement, excerpted below:

The Learning First Alliance applauds recent initiatives to modernize the E-Rate program, including the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) approval of the E-Rate Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) on July 19, 2013.

As the FCC moves forward with the rulemaking process, LFA urges the Commission to approve a significant and permanent increase to the E-Rate funding cap. LFA urges interested parties to provide feedback on the NPRM. Comments will be accepted until September 16, 2013.
