The Obama Administration has proposed a cut--from $269 million to $100 million--to the Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) program as part of its 2010 budget proposal. The four main organizations devoted to EdTech in schools--the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), International Society for Technology Education (ISTE), Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), and State Educational Technology Directors Association (SETDA)--released the following joint statement: "During the past several months, the Obama Administration has outlined a vision of educational innovation and improvement to enable our nation's children to compete in the global economy. But today's budget proposal falls far short of the targeted investments needed to ensure all students have the modernized classrooms and technology-rich instruction needed to achieve this vision." Meanwhile, guidelines from the Department of Education are getting more specific. Examples of how the department expects data systems to be integrated into schools are presented.
