Final phase of broadband in schools project – Education News | Primary, Secondary & Third Level | The Irish Time – Tue, Jan 07, 2014.

Minister for Communications Pat Rabbitte and Minister for Education Ruairí­Quinn announced that every secondary school will have access to 100Mbp/s connectivity by the beginning of the next school year, as they launched the final stage of the national project.

With high-speed broadband already installed in 516 schools through the project, yesterday’s announcement detailed a further 270 to be connected in counties Carlow, Cork, Kerry, Kilkenny, Limerick, Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford and Wicklow.

“Completing the final phase of the national programme will mean all our post-primary schools have been equipped with top class, future-proofed broadband,” said Mr Rabbitte.

“This will enable and motivate them to grasp the teaching and learning opportunities that the internet provides.”

50 Years Later, War on Poverty Is a Mixed Bag – NYTimes.com.

WASHINGTON — To many Americans, the war on poverty declared 50 years ago by President Lyndon B. Johnson has largely failed. The poverty rate has fallen only to 15 percent from 19 percent in two generations, and 46 million Americans live in households where the government considers their income scarcely adequate…

…But in the meantime, the greatest hope for poorer Americans would be a stronger economic recovery that brought the unemployment rate down from its current level of 7 percent and drew more people into the work force. The poverty rate for full-time workers is just 3 percent. For those not working, it is 33 percent.
