Digital tools are as critical to student learning today as pen and paper have been in the past. We at Identity Automation support the addition of the Enhancing Education Through Technology bill to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). This bill would ensure a dedicated and well-funded tech program would be part of the revised ESEA. The effort to make this revision is currently led by Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and is up for a vote later this afternoon.
Identity Automation firmly believes in helping schools be agile in technology adoption, and that the need to leverage best in breed tools and solutions should not be hedged against ease of management. One should not preclude the other; Identity Automation has always supported the march to smart technology adoption in education, and a well funded technology initiative will give our schools much needed flexibility in building their own technology initiatives.
