Welcome to the LEAD Commission

Answering a challenge from the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Education, the Leading Education by Advancing Digital (LEAD) Commission was established to determine how technology can help transform education in America. The Commission will do this through analyzing the ways in which technology is currently being implemented, determining which barriers are inhibiting greater usage, and recommending specific actions to accelerate adoption. The Commission is co-chaired by Lee Bollinger (President of Columbia University), Jim Coulter (Co-Founder of TPG), and Jim Steyer (Founder of Common Sense Media).
