The COVID Opportunity To Eliminate The Digital Divide

The scaling of broadband build-out in America remains a top priority as we head into the 2021-2022 school year. Facing limited funding, supply, and infrastructure, leaders must also address ways of providing digital literacy, parent and teaching training, and tech support. What are recommendations at the federal, state, and local levels to close the digital divide?

Digital accessibility requires a shared vision across several sectors, and this panel is sure to deliver.
