21st Century Education Demands Equal Access for All Students and Their Families
Access to the Internet puts the world's libraries of knowledge and academic resources in the palm of your hand. Wireless Internet provides access almost everywhere you want to go, making our cities and towns interactive learning communities, where the history of a downtown can come to life while you are right there enjoying it!
Affordable Internet access for students of all ages and their families is extremely important to ensure students have equal learning and development opportunities. Having access in the classroom, but not at home, is not acceptable for a student today. Unfortunately, it is the situation for many more students than you think.
That's why we advocate for service affordability and flexibility for all families so they, and their students, can achieve their greatest potential no matter where a learning opportunity may take them.
Connecting Students, Families, and Schools to Each Other
In addition to the Internet's value as an educational resource and tool, it also provides students and their families with access to tremendous school-based resources to ensure a student's success. This includes, but is not limited to, providing a direct communications link to school faculty and support staff for assistance in managing a student's academic progress throughout the school year. Parents and educators can work more easily together to keep students on track when this valuable, interactive communication link exists.
It also provides school administration, faculty, and staff with a direct link to students and their families, providing a robust communications tool for both routine and critically important academic and operational matters. This can increase efficiency and reduce costs in numerous ways.
