Summary

This indicator highlights findings about Internet access in schools. From 1994-98, Internet access and the percentage of instructional rooms with Internet access in public schools increased. Public schools with a high student poverty level were less likely to have Internet access than schools with a low poverty level from 1994-97. In fall 1998, high poverty-level public schools were as likely to have Internet access as low poverty-level schools. In fall 1997, public schools with a high minority enrollment had a lower rate of Internet access and a smaller percentage of instructional rooms with Internet access than schools with a low minority enrollment. By fall 1998, this gap closed, but high minority enrollment schools were still less likely to have instructional rooms with Internet access. In both public and private schools with Internet access, teachers were more likely to have access to e-mail, news groups, resource location services, and the World Wide Web than students. Tables and graphs present data on: (1) percentage of public schools and instructional rooms with Internet access by school characteristics, 1994-98; (2) percentage of public schools and instructional rooms with Internet access, 1994-98; and (3) percentage of public schools and instructional rooms with Internet access by percentage of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, 1998.
