You might find it hard to believe that many students don’t have computers at home, but it’s true. In Alameda County, for example, the last census determined that 48,203 people suffered from poverty, and we know that most of them lack access to computers. Imagine how far behind their children are at school when almost all middle class and rich kids have at least one computer they use to research and write papers. Poor children perform less well in school partly because they can’t compete well against other students who have a computers at home, while most low-income kids do not, so the poor kids fall further behind.
And poverty, welfare, drug abuse and violence continue into the next generation.
