Washington, DC - U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on FCC’s E-rate proposal:

“Chairman Wheeler's proposal to boost E-rate funding will put the nation well on the path toward realizing President Obama’s ConnectED Initiative and its vision of ensuring all students have the opportunities that accompany high-speed wireless in their classrooms, learning devices to access the internet and high-quality digital learning resources. We applaud the FCC’s continued efforts to help level the playing field so that all students have access to fast broadband, giving them the best chance to succeed in the global economy.” ~ Arne Duncan
