Connected Nation: One Voice
Chuck Riley, from Homework Central in Findlay, Ohio, explains in a letter to the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) on the impact that Connected Nation is having on Homework Central’s mission to empower children with the knowledge and tools of the 21st century.
" The mission of Homework Central, Inc. is to improve children's academic achievement by providing a literacy-rich, safe and nurturing environment through one-on-one mentoring relationships with caring teenagers and adults. […] Connect Ohio is helping us to add a computer lab to our reading room and life skills activities area. […] As you implement the Broadband Data Improvement Act and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and as you develop a national broadband plan for America, I urge you to support and fund programs such as Connect Ohio. […] Every state should have a program like Connect Ohio.”
Chuck Riley is just one note in the chorus of voices that that Connected Nation and its partners hear everyday. The song he sings is of the people of America who are fighting to enhance the lives of their children and improve their communities---all on the grassroots level.
