NEW YORK – The digital divide in education is real. By 2020, 77 percent of all jobs within the United States will require technology skills, yet millions of our students lack the technology and resources needed to succeed in the era of innovation. As a result, many of these students are lowering expectations for their future.
 
To help address this issue, Verizon will donate $1 per eligible phone trade-in up to $4 million to DonorsChoose.org to help provide tech, like tablets, laptops, 3D printers, VR gear, and other emerging technologies, to under-resourced schools across the nation. Donations will be made through DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit organization that empowers public school teachers across the country to request much needed materials and experiences for their students.
