Keith Krueger, CEO of CoSN (the Consortium for School Networking), today issued the following statement on the U.S. Senate approval for a resolution to restore net neutrality:
“Today’s successful vote was a vote with students, teachers and administrators top of mind. This is the first step in ensuring a level broadband playing field for schools in small, large, rural and urban communities nationwide.
“We thank Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) for leading the charge and the 51 other Senators who supported the resolution, including Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and John Kennedy.
“The House should follow their lead in standing up for school systems and protecting them from the unintended harmful consequences of a market without net neutrality guardrails. We urge them to advance this resolution as soon as possible.”
