TOPEKA, Kan Nearly 1 in 5 Kansas classrooms still lack access to high-speed Internet, according to a new state-by-state study. Sunflower State schools ranked 19th in the country in K-12 connectivity, it found.

In a statement released along with the report, EducationSuperHighway called on Gov. Sam Brownback (R-KS) to join 36 other governors who have committed to meet the goals established by the FCC to bring high-speed Internet access to all students.
