Education And Broadband

An odd synchronicity. On September 2, I was at the FCC lamenting that we had no data -- despite 10 years of E-Rate subsidizing broadband to schools -- whether the program had made any difference in educational outcomes. I urged them to get Department of Ed to do a study, and to work with other federal agencies to measure the impacts of BB.

On September 4 the Department of Education released this study examining the impact of broadband access in schools on educational outcomes.

Maybe I should have asked for a grant instead?
