Remote Education Struggles to Reach Students in Salt Lake City

As Salt Lake City went back to school this week entirely virtual, the school district saw a major drop in enrollment and a shocking lack of student participation. The cause? Many students lack the equipment needed to log in to class. According to the Salt Lake City Tribune, 14% of the student population had not logged in to class by Tuesday end of day. Inaccessible tech isn’t just an affordability issue, it’s a supply chain issue. The district is facing month-long backlogs in laptop and computer orders.

On this Business Casual segment, hosts Daniel Litwin and Tyler Kern investigate the structural issues impacting Salt Lake City students. As the school district lacks supply for their demand, could diversifying the supply chain have helped overcome this predicament? Remote learning is only becoming more commonplace; Kern and Litwin dissect the market for equitable ed-tech.

KEY POINTS:

  • Salt Lake City schools see a huge drop in enrollment as they return to school virtually.
  • SLC schools face a staggering supply chain issue, lacking the equipment to get every student, especially low income students, logged into class.
  • How can education professionals and education companies strategize to get students connected during COVID?
