FCC Chairman’s Promises to Children

posted by Nell Minow

On March 12, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski announced recommendations in the National Broadband Plan to benefit children and their families and initiatives to foster the Commission’s Children’s Agenda for Digital Opportunity to help children and empower parents.
“Children are our most precious national resource,” said Chairman Genachowski at a policy speech at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. “We must do everything we can to educate and prepare them to thrive in the 21st century, and keep them safe.” He promised programs to promote digital access, digital literacy, digital citizenship, and digital safety.
The National Broadband Plan will be sent to Congress this week.

    Big business doesn’t care about children so they will be forgotten about.

    And that’s exactly why the government needs to step in to give them a push. As usual, I am certain that this will enable business to become even more prosperous in the long term by forcing them to invest in the future.
