August Virtual Event: The Digital Inclusivity Crisis in American Education
Join Changing America for our first virtual event as we investigate one of the most critical problems facing America today.
As students across the country head back to one of the most important school years in recent American history, they are facing systemic issues in our education system. One of these was made painfully clear by the COVID-19 pandemic: millions of our children don’t have access to technology and high-speed internet they desperately need.
Recent reports have found that nearly 20 million Americans still lack access to fixed broadband service. In rural areas the numbers are even more alarming: nearly one-fourth of the population doesn’t have threshold speed internet services.
