Dear Members:

The Anatomy of 21st Century Education Reform, Part I is now available on our website under “Schools” and then “Education Reform” tabs. This report takes an in depth look at the history of the Schools and Libraries Program (also known as E-rate) and the National Education Technology Funding Corporation (NETFC).

If you long to understand why no one is listening to your concerns about Wi-Fi in schools, this report will help shed light on the reasons why. Please read the Introduction and Key Highlights. Save the rest for later if you cannot read all 211 pages now! We sincerely hope this report will help our collective cause. Stay tuned, as there will be more installments to follow.
