Update to the EducationSuperhighway

Jul 24, 2012

HIGHWAY UPDATE: A couple great questions from readerslastweek after we wrote about the upcoming EducationSuperhighway.org's plan to measure the bandwidth in K-12 schools. 1) Who's fundingthis? No telecom company money is at work, says cofounder Evan Marwell. So far,the effort is bootstrapped by Marwell and other private individuals who"are keenly focused on ensuring that we do not represent the interests ofanyone other than our schools."(Here's thebackstory on the group.) 2) So who gets the data? Those who test will see theirown speed results (much like this speedtest).Each school will get a report on its results; each district will receive itsown district report and each state will get a state report. "We will alsobe publishing aggregate statistics and a map with some level of drill-downability that is still to be determined," Marwell says. Sign up here tobe a partner when it starts in September. And keep the questions coming!
