E-Rate is a telecommunications
and Internet access discount plan for libraries, schools and rural health care
providers. It arises out of Universal Service provisions of the Telecommunications
Act of 1996, in particular the Snowe - Rockefeller amendments. Rules for implementation
of discounts, ranging from 20% to 90% off the best regular price based on community
economic conditions (measured by federal school lunch eligibility), have recently
been announced by the Federal Communication Commission. Funds for the program
-- up to $2.25 billion annually across the U.S. -- will become available in January,
1998. Availability of applications forms and procedures for handling them are
still to be worked out. Details will be announced here as soon as they are known.
An education today is not complete unless it includes teaching children how to
use computers and search the Internet. But in a busy classroom with several computers,
how can a teacher ensure that students are not wasting time playing games or sending
chat messages when they should be doing research? How can a teacher make sure
that no student views an offensive site, even accidentally?

for pornography and game sites.
