New Report Released
Here is What the National Digital Divide Looks Like
Common Sense Media and Boston Consulting Group just released a new state-by-state report on the digital divide for America's K-12 students, finding that the divide is much larger than previously estimated and that it affects our nation's teachers too. With distance learning likely this fall at schools across the country, this new report lends important guidance and an added sense of urgency for Congress and the states to address the unequal access students and teachers face in every state when it comes to conducting school from home.

This new data and analysis, which estimates a first-year cost to close the divide of between $6 billion and $11 billion for students and another $1 billion for teachers, is invaluable to policymakers, educators, administrators and the private sector as they address this critical problem.
