Dear Editor:

One reason the governor signed the no snow days bill into law was because it means no school makeup days in the spring, The down side is the fact that students without broadband access will still miss days of school since they cannot do assignments if teachers assign online homework during what used to be snow days.

While I do not argue the merits of this new law, it reminds me that Pennsylvania must bring internet equity to all students as a top legislative priority and not unintentionally leave them even further behind.
