You have seen articles over the past couple of days about President Obama getting the Federal Communications Commission to add an extra billion dollars towards providing high-speed Internet to schools and libraries.

Here are some of the better articles on it:

Here’s Obama’s plan to give teachers and libraries $1 billion a year in extra funding is from The Washington Post.

F.C.C. to Change Program That Connects Schools to High-Speed Internet Service is from The New York Times.

Personally, I’ll believe it when I see it…

What are your thoughts? Is it really going to make much of a difference? Will money really get to schools?
