Released Monday, 16th March 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode I look at the recent reporting on Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and the "free" services being offered to low-income residents. I examine the FCC Chairman Ajit Pai's request for companies to sign the "Keep America Connected" pledge, and what this should mean for K-12 school Technology Supervisors and Coordinators moving forward once the coronavirus has passed. I discuss the necessary urgency for school districts in NJ and across the nation to willingly address the inequities that face our ethnic, racial, and underrserved students and work to solve them for good in NJ and the nation as a whole.
