Eshoo Wholeheartedly Supports White House Plan to Expand K-12 Internet Speeds
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Palo Alto), Ranking Member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee, issued the following statement today after the White House announced a new initiative to deliver faster broadband Internet access to America's K-12 schools. Rep. Eshoo and Federal Communications Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel outlined a proposal in line with the President's in a POLITICO op-ed earlier this week. "I wholeheartedly support the President's call to modernize the E-Rate program in order to bring faster broadband speeds to our nation's schools and libraries," Rep. Eshoo said. "To enable a 21st century digital classroom, supported by high-definition video, cloud-based services and other advanced applications, we need bandwidth — and lots of it. We are moving rapidly toward a world where what matters is capacity, not just access. Now is the time to reshape the E-Rate program to meet that growing need." ###
Eshoo Congratulates U.S. Physics Team Members from 18th Congressional District
WASHINGTON, D.C.—In her Washington, D.C. office today, Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Palo Alto) welcomed five visiting members of this year's U.S. Physics Team who hail from California's 18th Congressional District. The U.S. team, made up of 20 high school students, is now in the midst of a ten-day "training camp" at the University of Maryland-College Park, after which five team members will be chosen to travel to the 44th International Physics Olympiad in Copenhagen, Denmark. "Bravo to the high school students who made this year's U.S. Physics Team, especially to the five team members from California's 18th Congressional District," said Rep. Eshoo, who is a member of the House Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education Caucus. "Today it's the U.S. Physics Team. Tomorrow it could be a Nobel Prize. The fact that our Congressional District has more team members on this year's U.S. Physics Team than any other congressional district in the nation is a testament to our region's
Eshoo, Whitehouse Request Progress Report on Law to Stop Loud TV Commercials
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), authors of the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act, are asking the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to provide information on the progress of the law's implementation. The law went into effect nearly six months ago and requires broadcast, cable, satellite and other video providers to keep the volume of commercials at a level consistent with regular TV programming. In a letter to Acting FCC Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn today, Eshoo and Whitehouse requested, among other things, the number of consumer complaints of loud TV commercials received by the Commission and the number of waiver requests granted for temporary relief from CALM Act rules. A copy of the letter Eshoo and Whitehouse sent to the FCC can be found here. ###
Transforming education digitally
By Rep. Anna G. Eshoo and Jessica Rosenworcel Across the country, the school year is drawing to a close. Students are taking tests and packing up their backpacks. They are counting down, as they always do, to the last day of class. Though no comparable countdown exists, what is also drawing to a close is the analog era of education. Digital-age broadband and cloud computing are not only revolutionizing our economy, they are transforming education as we know it. In time, traditional classroom teaching tools like blackboards and books are bound to be delivered through high-speed bandwidth. This means students learning about cell technology through a digital rendering in an interactive book. It means using gaming to explore math concepts like the Pythagorean theorem. It means developing videos to experience historical events. If all this sounds gee-whiz and futuristic, consider that these changes have already taken place in so much of our lives.
