In education, the network continues to expand access to quality teaching resources, so that people of every socioeconomic background have a chance to educate themselves and participate in the global economy. At its core, the network has become a platform—one that transforms how we interact with our government institutions, conduct business on a daily basis, and connect with our family and friends.
