Only 13 percent of schools have the broadband they need to give students the same online access that most Americans have at home, work or even in a coffee shop. To bridge the digital divide in education, the International Society for Technology in Education, (ISTE®) today initiated an online petition urging the Obama Administration to take action to invest in school broadband connectivity to ensure all students graduate equipped for success.

If ISTE's petition to "Invest in classroom broadband connectivity to ensure that all students are ready for college and 21st century careers," reaches 100,000 signatures by May 1, 2013, the White House will respond. To sign the petition today, go to http://wh.gov/LVL7.
