ENA > Articles > The High Cost of Poor Connectivity
With remote and hybrid learning programs being implemented nationwide, connectivity is more essential to education than ever before. For members of the K-12 community, the quality of the connection can therefore spell the difference between success and failure.

Here’s what’s on the line for your community when you choose your Internet provider

Students

The Problem:
Without reliable connectivity in the classroom, students cannot access essential online resources or—in cases of remote students—connect with teachers conducting their classes from within a school building.

The Consequence:
Learning is disrupted and student engagement plummets.

Administrators

The Problem: 
Unstable connectivity prevents administrators from managing payrolls, communicating effectively with the community, and maintaining business continuity.

The Consequence:
Distrust and frustration grow among staff members and the community regarding the district’s ability to operate efficiently.

Parents

The Problem:
Unreliable communication and an inability to access essential online resources lead parents to lose faith that the school system will meet their kids’ needs.

The Consequence:
Parents may choose to send their kids to another school.

IT Team

The Problem: 
IT teams are forced to divert their attention from other concerns and spend their time repeatedly fixing persistent connectivity issues.

The Consequence:
Not only does this lead to frustration and extra work, IT team members are pulled away from supporting the other technologies critical to virtual learning.
