Google Launches Rolling Study Halls

Hell yeah! Now students can watch porn do homework that requires internet access on their way to and from school. I don't see how this could be abuse in any way. 😖 Also,  internet access for buses = billions. Teachers quit assigning homework that requires internet access = $0.

While teachers increasingly assign schoolwork that requires access to the internet, millions of students lack connectivity at home. This ‘Homework Gap’ disproportionally impacts low-income students, especially in more remote or rural areas, where they face additional burdens like long bus commutes. After initial pilots in North Carolina and South Carolina, early results indicate promising gains in reading and math proficiency, and increased digital fluency. So we're expanding Rolling Study Halls to reach thousands more students across 16 more school districts, focused on rural communities.
