Let Local Educators Close the Broadband “Homework Gap”

The FCC shouldn’t get in the way of communities working to close the digital divide for students.

“This isn’t just about faster internet or being able to find a friend on Facebook. It’s about connecting every corner of America to the digital age… It’s about every young person who no longer has to leave his hometown to seek new opportunity — because opportunity is right there at his or her fingertips.” — President Obama during NMU visit

As the FCC looks for the best way to reinvigorate the EBS band, it should prioritize educational entities that continue to do what they do best: connecting their communities.
