The internet has created amazing opportunities for education. Sadly, it’s also created a gap between families that can afford home internet access and 5 million families with school-aged children that can’t.For those living paycheck to paycheck, food, shelter and utilities understandably take a higher priority over internet access.
But since 70 percent of teachers are now assigning internet-based homework,connectivity isn’t a luxury – it’s an absolute necessity for students. Nearly half of 14- to 18-year-olds report using a library computer primarily for homework.Students lacking home internet access are cut off from a future of possibilities.
That’s why Sprint and the Sprint Foundation will change the lives of 1 million high school students by giving them opportunities to reach their full potential.
