    On Wednesday, I was contacted by US Senator Sherrod Brown regarding the work we are doing at Princeton on equity around connectivity issues.

    Senator Brown hosted a news conference call as he introduced legislation with Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) to make sure Ohioans have reliable broadband internet access to work, go to school, speak with healthcare providers and stay connected with loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The Emergency Broadband Connections Act would help Ohioans who have been laid-off or furloughed due to the coronavirus pandemic and low-income Ohioans who are harmed by the digital divide.

    I lent my support for Brown’s bill, citing the importance of broadband internet access in order to close the opportunity and academic achievement gaps. 

    This effort is long overdue for a multitude of reasons. We would never think about giving certain kids textbooks and not others. Any student that is in a classroom is going to get a textbook, yet when it comes to the most powerful educational engine right now -- broadband internet -- it’s limited to only students who can afford it. This creates an unacceptable opportunity gap and further extends the achievement gap for far too many students.”"--Tom Burton
