Teaming up with Elon Musk’s SpaceX to beam high-speed broadband from outer space. Creating a public-private partnership to blanket entire neighborhoods with free Wi-Fi. Moving beyond temporary fixes to provide permanent, reliable home internet for all. Hear from members of Chiefs for Change, a bipartisan network of school superintendents and state education leaders, about how they are ending the digital divide so that every student can access the information they need for today’s modern world.
