Students Hurt By The Digital Divide

I like how this article never considered the obvious solution....quit assigning homework that requires internet access. Problem solved, bajillions of dollars saved. roll eyes (sarcastic)

As a result, in order to complete digital assignments, these kids are forced to find sources of free Internet access outside of school. While the library is often an option, hours can be limited, particularly in the evening. As the WSJ piece details, many of these students are increasingly turning to free WiFi at places like McDonald’s to complete their homework.
