Wayne Lewis, Kentucky Education Commissioner and Dean of Education at Belmont University in Nashville talks about what lessons were learned from remote-learning in the spring and how we move forward.
“Broadband access and access to digital tools and digital resources is not a luxury. It’s an absolute necessity. And when we think about kids not having access to those things, we should think about it very similar to the way we would think if kids didn’t have access to electricity. …There’s no way in the 21st-century environment as we’re preparing for a 21st-century workforce for these kids, that they can have the type of education that they need and that they deserve unless we can ensure that every child has access to those resources.”
