Celebrating 20 Years of E-Rate

Event marks two decades of connecting schools and libraries to the internet.
January 24 marked the 20th anniversary of E-Rate, 
the landmark program that provides affordable internet 
access to US schools and libraries. 
That day the National Coalition for Technology in 
Education and Training (NCTET) and the American 
Library Association hosted advocates and activists from 
all corners of education, technology, telecommunications, 
and libraries for “Twenty Years of Connecting Schools and 
Libraries: A Celebration of E-Rate.”
