Education Week-- FCC Chair Seeks to Overturn ‘Net Neutrality’ Rules, With Implications for K-12

The Federal Communications Commission is moving ahead with long-anticipated plans to dismantle “net neutrality” protections, a decision that has potentially big implications for the work of schools and ed-tech providers.

Net neutrality is the principle that all content delivered via the web be treated equally by internet service providers—rather than allowing those companies to deliver some materials at faster speeds, while throttling or blocking other resources.

Republican FCC Chairman Ajit Pai, who has repeatedly denounced the existing net neutrality policy, laid out the basic parameters of a plan to upend it on Tuesday.

The chairman said he will release a full proposal tomorrow, to allow for more than three weeks of public review before a Dec. 14 vote by the commission.
