Educational Impact of Digital Redlining – Podcast Episode 232 | Classnotes Podcast 232
Classnotes Podcast (February 6, 2023). Public school investment has largely mirrored investment in parts of communities or certain neighborhoods. The discriminatory practice of redlining occurred when particular neighborhoods were marked as risky investments. Those neighborhoods had significant populations of people of color and families with low incomes. The redlining is illegal, most communities have not recovered or experienced new investment.
Digital redlining carries forward these inequities among marginalized groups through real access to affordable technology, digital content and broadband Internet. In this episode, Thomas Marshall III talks with Jordana Barton, vice president of community investments with Methodist Healthcare Ministries, about digital redlining and the fact that scarcity is a false assumption. The problem affects everyone and can be solved today.
