For past two years, Google is showing an immense effort to rural communities where students are going through longtime bus travel between their school and home every day, it was initiated in a program conducted in North Carolina and South Carolina.

This initiate of Google is in collaboration with Consortium for School Networking (CoSN). As of today’s announcement, they have added 16 districts from 12 states, the states are,
- New Mexico

How will it pan out with positivity? As everyone knows about the student’s utilization and care to work for studies, this stat was build up by some well knowledgeable students.
Approximately 67 percent of the Gamewell Middle School population is assigned to one of the nine standard yellow buses. More than 400 miles are logged on the Gamewell Middle School buses each day, and throughout the district, the average bus route is 1.5 hours in the morning and in the afternoon.
Though, Apple’s last week announcement of introducing iPad and education software that brought down to some debate on Google’s classroom devices. The Rolling Study Halls program will show the dominance of Google to establish Chromebook as a tool for students to utilize every day.
