New FCC chief friendly to schools

According to eSchool News Online: “Kevin J. Martin, President Bush’s choice to lead the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) into a new era of digital transmissions, is a firm supporter of the eRate and other telecommunications programs that benefit education, according to an analysis of his voting record and public statements he has made as an FCC commissioner.” It will be interesting to see over time what he does to either save or axe E-Rate and other floundering programs.
