ATTAIN possible replacement for EETT

A new bill introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives, called The Achievement Through Technology and Innovation Act of 2007(ATTAIN), aims to make significant improvements to the federal Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT) block-grant program. Backed by SETDA, CoSN, and ISTE, the bill would increase the size of formula grants, target funding more effectively to schools in need of improvement, and specify that a higher percentage of funds be used for sustained professional development, among other changes.
