TECH+Education Event – The Back to School Dilemma

We’ve compiled our favorite moments from the session below. If you wish to check out the full session, see here.

Of course we want our kids back in school, but even if they do, what about the real risks to them and us? Yet if they don’t go, some of them won’t eat, since school breakfasts and lunches are critical for many kids. Staying at home means emotional challenges piled on top of educational ones.

    For a long time we have ignored the importance of Broadband connectivity and access to affordable high speed Internet by close to 20% of our population. What needs to be done to remedy this problem and use the access to affordable Broadband for education and health and mental health. Thanks, Reza
