Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Nature of E-rate Policy and Change, Application Process, and Funding: Influence on E-rate Usage and Technology over Two Decades
by Stoneberger, Brett Allen, Ed.D., Pepperdine University, 2019, 282; 27667011
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this case study was to develop a comprehensive understanding of the real-world issues encountered by applicants attempting to realize opportunities available through the E-rate program. With multiple changes in the E-rate program spanning nearly two decades, it is necessary to understand what E-rate applicants have experienced, and what the impacts of those experiences are (past, present, and future). This study explored a micro version of the E-rate program as experienced by two small and remote Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) funded K-8 schools on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota since 1998.
