The Digital Divide is real. A nationwide survey of First Book’s Network of educators showed that children in need do not have adequate resources to engage in virtual learning.
“These students find themselves at a learning disadvantage. We surveyed families discovering many have only cellphones as their sole access to the internet, no computers, no internet at home, and when available they have multiple siblings and adults competing for these devices.” – Klamath Falls City Schools, Klamath Falls, OR
All kids should have equal access to education. CDW-G, Intel Corporation ® , the LEGO® Foundation and First Book have collaborated to provide 45 school districts serving kids in need with the resources to support their connection to learning – addressing a fundamental educational inequity.
The Flexible Learning Strategies for Out of School Children programme is a UNESCO initiative with the aim of supporting inclusive and quality education for every child in the region. Our goal is to reach the remaining and most vulnerable 5% of children with no access to education in the region and support quality improvements in learning for every child.
