OECD ranks US #1 in schools' broadband access

In another example of how many have overstated that the U.S. is falling behind the world in broadband, the OECD ranks the U.S. #1 in broadband Internet access to schools, with 97% of all American primary and secondary schools having broadband Internet access per the latest OECD data.

This data suggests that lack of broadband access may not a major reason why American students test lower than students in many OECD countries.
