ESEA Reauthorization

Keith Krueger, CEO of CoSN (the Consortium for School Networking), on July 8, 2015, applauded Senators Angus King (I-ME) and Shelley Capito (R-WV) for proposing critical education technology additions to S.1177 (the Every Child Achieves Act).

Krueger issued the following statement:

“Student learning is no longer confined to inside school walls and doors. Digital access keeps our students – and their desire to learn – connected and thriving at all times.

“The sad reality is that students from low-income families do not have the same level of digital access and connectivity as others. This prevents them from fully experiencing and benefitting from always-on learning.

“The amendments introduced by Senators King and Capito focus on reducing such digital inequities and will help to ensure all students have access to high-capacity broadband outside of school – and particularly at home.

“America’s school system technology leaders urge these crucial amendments to be included in the next Elementary and Secondary Education Act.”
