Democratic U.S. Congressman Ben Ray Lujan of New Mexico and Federal Communications Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel got a demonstration Friday of the "Rolling Study Halls" program.

Students participated in a coding activity during the bus ride. Then, the school district hosted a discussion with Lujan and Rosenworcel about the digital divide.

Lujan says if airline passengers can access the internet at 30,000 feet, students on the ground should also have Wi-Fi in their buses to get homework done.

Lujan has introduced legislation aimed at broadening access by allowing the commission's E-Rate program to reimburse schools that place Wi-Fi technology on school buses.
