In all of my schools and classes we rarely ever used online resources in class. The majority of our computer use was typing up essays and other documents or researching one assignment. Like researching an author, then we never got to touch the internet again for the rest of the class.
You can forget educational video content, we were still using a vcr and tv even though our county is in the top 25 wealthiest in the US. Our education system is ridiculous. /off topic rant
That would be horrible for the economy.

How about instead of offering ungodly high bandwidth connections for a few places, you slightly improve existing ones, lower prices, and strengthen the weaker portions of the infrastructure. It's like building a house when the foundation is just a few toothpicks.

That is so asinine, I don't even know where to begin. There is so much more to school and going to school than the mere access to information. I'm not saying that our education system is not in poor shape right now, but relying on a largely unregulated "information" source like the internet for education is absolutely artarded and backasswards. It's bad enough that people with PhD's in Wikipedia start regurgitating what they encountered for maybe 30 seconds on a wikipedia page, and somehow think they are an expert on that particular topic. Having access to "information" sources does not constitute educational material. You absolutely need the guidance that schools provide in order to learn how to learn. You can't just let someone have access to this and that and expect they have those learning abilities in the first place. I'm not saying that there isn't obvious educational material/information available online--of course there is. But the vast availability of information--whether correct or not--to people that haven't learned how to learn yet just instills a false sense of knowledge.

The US is a pretty young country, and I'm not saying that integration of digital material in schools shouldn't or won't happen--but there's no way you can make a statement like "fire all of the teachers" and expect that immature, young people will just magically learn just because you introduce them to the internet.

50Mbps FiOS is $140/month at my house (if we ordered it).
What would even 1Gbps cost?

edit:
Whoa!
I have access (if I could afford it) to 150Mbps down/ 35Mbps up.
$200/month

So sick of Comcast. Verizon or Google FIOS needs to expand to my non commercial area.

What's the point? Are they going to finally get away from UBB since they are rolling out 100Gbit networks? Ha, I highly doubt.
