Broadband for Education: The National Internet2 K20 Initiative's and WICHE's Recommendations to the FCC
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education
The National Internet2 K20 Initiative brings together its world-class network and research community members with innovators from colleges and universities, primary and secondary schools, libraries, museums and other educational institutions, the full spectrum of America's education community, including both formal and informal education. The National K20 Initiative extends new technologies, applications, and rich educational content to all students, their families and communities--no matter where they're located. Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) and its 15 member states work to improve access to higher education and ensure student success. At present much of the West, particularly the "frontier West," has little or no access to adequate bandwidth. Many institutions are not among those connected by and participating in the Internet2 K20 Initiative. The principles and recommendations presented in this paper would remedy this situation.
