DENVER (AP) -- Colorado educators are worried that limited access to the Internet will hurt some school children as the state takes testing online.

Many rural communities lack high-speed access and in some cases, classes are forced to log off so other classes can get the information they need.

According to the Denver Post, classes ranging from Advanced Placement to world languages may not even be available.

The Colorado Department of Education says cost is a big factor in determining which schools get high-speed Internet.
