Abstract

To date, little work has been done to determine the degree to which children have continuous access to broadband. This paper presents secondary analyses of Census, FCC, student achievement, and school district data to discover possible connections between broadband access and learning. Results revealed lack of perceived need was the overriding factor for no home broadband. While school broadband, and community and district characteristics had no significant relationship to one another or to student achievement, rurality had an unmistakable correlation, suggesting that a lack of rural home broadband could be especially problematic.
