Digital rights and home schooling

Home schooling was challenging for both parents and children on many levels. One of the ways in which it was challenging was in terms of access to devices and to the internet to allow quality home schooling to take place. Research shows that Covid-19 is likely to have a particularly detrimental impact on children and young people already living in poverty in the UK, and this is especially true when it comes to digital poverty.

In response to this issue, MUMO wrote a blog as part of the Participation and Practice of Right’s excellent Internet4all campaign, aiming to promote digital rights and secure universal and free access to the internet.
