The Digital Divide: Policy and Funding Implication (Continuing Education)

Dr. Steven Aragon, Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education

When Covid-19 became a pandemic, school districts were proactive in their response by sending students home to finish out the academic year.  Teachers quickly placed lessons on learning platforms for students to complete.  While Covid-19 revealed how quickly educators could respond to a pandemic, it also revealed an infrastructure problem detrimental to being able to successfully educate students during such times – the Digital Divide.  Defined as the gulf between those who have ready access to computers and the Internet, those who do not, the digital divide not only affects education but economic growth and wage increases, easier access to medical care, and job opportunities.  This session presents policy and funding implications of the digital divide, recognizing it as no different or less important than any other diversity, equity, or inclusion issue needing the attention of the school district.
