STATEMENT OF FCC CHAIRMAN WILLIAM E. KENNARD
America's children, especially low income and rural children, need access to today's
technology if they are to compete in tomorrow's workforce. To do this, we need discounts to
hook up classrooms and libraries to the Internet. We have received hundreds of letters asking us
to do just that.|
Ending this effort is not in the best interest of the American public. We need to find a way to ensure that this effort continues. I am committed to this.
