The Role of the Federal Government
The federal government has an important leadership role to play in building a national infrastructure for learning. For example, the Office of Educational Technology should help states and districts build their capacity by providing a clearinghouse that matches expert advice and services with those who need it. This could include consolidating, leveraging, and sharing knowledge, research, and best practices and promoting and enhancing the interactions of partners in alliances focused on solving key challenges.
Another appropriate role is promoting equity in the infrastructure for learning through continuation of the E-Rate.
