Washington, DC - May 16, 2018 - Statement from Richard Culatta, CEO of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), about the U.S. Senate vote on net neutrality:
“The promise of an open internet is foundational to providing equitable learning opportunities to all students, not just those who can afford them,” said ISTE CEO Richard Culatta. “We applaud the Senate for this bipartisan effort to overturn the FCC’s decision to end net neutrality. We want to particularly recognize the senators who put aside party lines to do the right thing for educators and students. We are hopeful that members of the U.S. House will show their leadership to ensure access to high-quality educational resources continues to be a national priority.”
