We Are on a Mission to Bridge the Homework Gap
Despite ongoing efforts to digitize education and move to online resources, nearly half of those living in rural communities in the US still lack broadband access. On tribal lands, the problem is even more acute with nearly two-thirds lacking access to adequate Internet. So, while many rural schools are being updated with fiber and modern computer equipment, many students cannot access those increasingly essential resources from home. This lack of off-campus access has been termed the "Homework Gap," and the problem arguably creates a greater disadvantage for rural students than existed before the advent of digital education. Our mission at MuralNet is to help students by providing free connectivity to students in rural areas.
