4 ways that cash-strapped schools can address the homework gap
from EdTech Magazine
The $1.5 billion increase in E-rate funding in 2014 may be providing more schools with high-speed internet, but now districts must address a new side to the digital equity issue — the homework gap. Millions of students (many of whom are economically disadvantaged or live in rural areas) don't have reliable high-speed internet and technology access at home. This is a major issue if you consider that within the next three years at least 50 percent of learning resources and content will be digital, according to CoSN's 2016 K–12 IT Leadership Survey.
