CoSN (the Consortium for School Networking) CEO Keith Krueger today issued the following statement on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) net neutrality vote:
“Today’s vote, led by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, is disappointing and concerning to CoSN and our members.  Absent the net neutrality guardrails, school systems will now face a bleak reality: reduced choices, higher prices and fewer innovative tools. The Internet has long been a linchpin in educational innovation, cultivating unlimited ideas for using broadband networks in new, exciting ways. Today’s decision hobbles the Internet’s promise – with unexpected consequences to come. We hoped the FCC leadership would have carefully considered the implications for teaching and learning before making such a drastic move. One that leaves communities with more questions and worry in its wake.”
