Due to the COVID-19 situation, students of all ages have been required to stay at home and continue their school virtually- but not everyone has access to internet in their homes. People usually have some way of dealing with this in their day to day lives – by going to libraries, cafes, friend’s houses – but these are now off-limits.

The goal of this petition is to get internet access to students who need it to complete their education in light of the coronavirus. While one internet provider, Spectrum, opened up some free days to students who do not originally have it out of the goodness of their hearts, many areas are backed up for weeks in order to get the installations, and this could get worse. Not only would a policy like this help students before their futures are impacted, but would prepare us for pandemics in the future.

The lack of internet access is especially affecting students who come from low income families, and hampers their future.
