Rural Schools Receive New Platform to Discuss Technological Needs

1 minute read

Nearly one fifth of U.S. public school students are considered rural. And when it comes to education-reform policy discussions, rural schools and students are often overlooked. That’s why online educator network, edWeb.net is partnering with the Consortium for School Networking for a new initiative called “Tech for Rural Districts”. The initiative wants to help narrow the technology gap between urban and rural districts.

Often, rural districts are behind in adopting new technology and have limited access to broadband. Issues like these can reduce classroom quality and opportunities for students.

Webinar topics will include technology funding, broadband access, and how to get community involvement.
