NTIA Solicits Comments on Technology Protection Measures and Internet Safety Policies

The Commerce Department's National Telecommunications and Information Administration is soliciting comments to evaluate whether current blocking and filtering technology and Internet safety policies adequately address the needs of schools. The Children's Internet Protection Act, which Congress passed in December 2000, required NTIA to make recommendations to Congress on how to encourage the development of protection measures that would meet the needs of educational institutions.

Written comments are due on or before August 27, 2002.

The Consortium for School Networking plans to submit a response and to solicit input from its members on these questions.
