About the Project
Over 1 in 5 of the nation's smallest schools lacked access to high-speed broadband in 2021 according to the FCC. This inequity was underscored throughout the COVID-19 pandemic where virtual learning may have been challenging or impossible.
As a broadband advocate, sharing your voice, school stories, and your expertise will raise awareness and inspire others to get involved in rural broadband advocacy. As part of the Rural Imperative Initiative, you're invited to join RSC and the National Rural Education Association for a two-week rural broadband advocacy campaign, beginning August 1st.
Using the Toolkit
Throughout the document, there will be live links to tweet out images and information regarding rural access to high-speed broadband. Join in on the campaign to raise awareness (August 1-14).
