The COVID-19 pandemic has forced more than 50 million U.S. students to learn from home. Yet nearly 17 million children are unable to take part because their families don’t have an internet connection or device to support digital learning. To help close the gap, AT&T is offering discounted unlimited wireless data plans to more than 135,000 public and private schools across the country. In addition to the discounted plans, AT&T is making a $10 million commitment to support at-risk students disconnected from learning and has expanded availability of tech-enabled tools and learning resources for students, teachers, schools, and parents.
