Our students are at risk of being left behind if they do not have access to virtual instruction! Our educators cannot deliver high-quality remote instruction without affordable high-speed internet in their homes! Ask your legislator to provide all students and educators FREE, High-Speed Internet as part of their access to a sound, basic education!
We are calling on legislators to fund free, high-speed internet for ALL public school students and educators who need it during this pandemic. COVID-19 has shown how critical it is to close the digital divide. We urge our legislators to direct CARES Act funds as well as using reserve funding for this emergency situation. Many districts have started instruction online and will continue to do so until it is safe to go back into school buildings. We cannot let educational inequities and disparities grow even wider. Join parents, educators, students and the community in the call for making high-speed internet accessible for all North Carolinians.
