BRIDGING THE DIGITAL DIVIDE: WHAT CHALLENGE DOES TEXAS FACE? (PART 1)

Digital Divide

From students using restaurants’ WIFI to parents spending hundreds of dollars a month on hotspots for their children’s schoolwork, our state’s public education system has been changed forever by the pandemic.

In this podcast episode of Intersect Ed (part 1 of 2), we focus on the digital divide — what it is, who is affected by it, how it is affecting Texas public schools and their students, and, most importantly, how experts and lawmakers can help to close the divide.

Listen as Tessa Benavides, our media relations associate, digs into how the pandemic has surfaced inequities in our state’s public education — and why we need to be intentional about how we solve these inequities so all students have equitable access to online learning in the long term.
