Check Out Remedies for Families With Internet Access Too Slow for Remote Learning
During the COVID-19 school building closures, big equity problems around internet access emerged. But one layer of this equity issue went largely unexplored: Some households have access to the Internet, but only at slow speeds that make school tasks like videoconferencing or completing homework assignments next to impossible.
That’s especially true for families with multiple children, or for parents using the home internet while forced to work remotely during the pandemic.
The urgency to resolve these issues is high as many schools appear likely to continue remote learning for at least some students next school year.
