Report Outlines Goals for K-12 Broadband
A report from the State Educational Technology Directors Association provides recommendations for creating ubiquitous, equitable broadband access for K-12 schools. The Broadband Imperative builds on a 2008 report from the Arlington, Va.-based SEDTA about broadband needs.
The group outlines broadband standards for all schools, beginning in the 2014-15 academic year, including responsibility for out-of-school access in homes, libraries, and community centers.
The federal government should provide funding for broadband access, according to the report.
In a briefing on the report last month, SEDTA officials said the Common Core State Standards effort will provide an opportunity for collaboration among educators across states, much of which will depend on having a strong broadband connection.
