The digital divide during COVID-19

About 25% of all school-aged children live in households without broadband access or a

web-enabled device such as a computer or tablet. This inequality systematically aligns with historic divisions of race, socioeconomic status, and geographic location.

Many families are struggling to meet the demands of learning within a public health crisis.  While some families struggle to balance work & family life at home, some students have been completely missing from school since the pandemic began.

 

Numerous community based organizations decided to support those families in the following ways:

  • Provide a safe space away from home.

  • Provide Academic Enrichment / Support

  • Provide Technological Assistance

Many of these programs are free for families, but require support from the community.

Our Plan: Support community based organizations
