That’s why, today, I really want to share this new program that the company recently launched with you. I follow the website MacRumors closely and today they posted a story about Apple’s partnership with ConnectEd.
President Obama launched the ConnectED initiative back in 2013 and through it the federal government pledged more than $100,000,000 worth of funding to schools that were classified as underserved across the United States.
By teaming up with and supporting the initiative, Apple is committing to the goal of accessibility, inclusion, and most importantly here: education equality. Not only are they providing technology but they are also providing the education and training that is needed so that teachers and students alike can take maximum advantage of that technology.
Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime.
There are other companies like Verizon and Microsoft that have also gotten involved with the ConnectEd initiative. Check out the links within to learn more. Simply put: thank you, Apple, for being so pronounced in your support of education and access in so many ways.
