I’ve written a lot about programs at our school and by other groups to get internet connections and computers into the hands of low-income people (see The Best Resources For Learning About Schools Providing Home Computers & Internet Access To Students).
One of those posts was about an upcoming major effort supported by the FCC and it’s upcoming no longer — it began today. You can read about it in these two articles:
Internet Access for All: A New Program Targets Low-Income Students is from Mind Shift.
Home Broadband Effort Will Extend Internet Access to Millions More Americans is from Education Week.
While you’re at it, you might find another recent Ed Week article useful: Districts Forge School-to-Home Digital Connections.
