With the shift to distance learning due to the coronavirus pandemic, many districts are addressing students’ unequal access to broadband challenges (see “Emerging Statistics” section, below for related research). Strategies for addressing this divide have clustered on circulation of mobile hot spots on buses (as in South Bend, Indiana and Rochester, New Hampshire), and the distribution of laptops for students (as in California), which were funded by private donors and foundations. Industry responses include the placement of hotspots in communities for public use, as Comcast and Atlantic Broadband have done. #covid-19 #education
