EducationSuperHighway was founded with the mission of upgrading the Internet access in every public school classroom in America. In 2013, only 10% of students had access to digital learning in their classrooms. Today, thanks to an unprecedented bi-partisan effort by federal, state, and school district leaders, supported by K-12 advocacy organizations, 43 million students are connected, and 99.7% of America’s schools have a high-speed broadband connection.
In 2020, the pandemic made it clear that without home broadband, you are shut out of economic security and opportunity. We are now focused on bridging the digital divide and closing the homework gap in America’s most unconnected communities. We are funded entirely by philanthropy and do not charge states, school districts, or Internet Service Providers to participate in the K-12 Bridge to Broadband initiative.
