Is now the time to expand E-Rate?

As millions of K-12 students across the country continue to take online classes from home, technology and home internet connections in particular remain an obstacle to universal access.

Pressure to change the program has increased during the pandemic as educators say the federal COVID-19 relief provided hasn't been enough to cover education's new needs. Ryan Johnston explores the issue over on StateScoop.

The university is considering making it an official planning tool and other universities have expressed interest making the platform intercollegiate. Betsy Foresman has the details.

At the University of Arizona, the progressive reopening will involve a close watch over the data, Richard Carmona, director of UA’s campus reentry task force, told EdScoop. The university plans to bring about 5,000 students back to campus next week and then as many as 30,000 in the coming months, he said, but that could change if the data turns. “At any time we see any of the metrics that are going in the wrong direction, we can stop,” he said.
