If You’ve Never Heard of the ‘Homework Gap’ This Video Will Shock You

Post by Didge on Tue Dec 19, 2017 12:48 pm



n the age of technology, we have more information at our finger tips than ever before. We partnered with Sprint to explore what advantages (and disadvantages) students have thanks to the internet. 70% of teachers assign homework that requires access to the internet. Yet, 5 million families with school aged children do not have access to high speed internet at home. So, what happens to the kids whose life circumstances don’t allow them easy access to all the internet has to offer?

That’s why Sprint has committed to help close the Homework Gap by providing 1 million free devices and wireless service to low income high school students who do not have internet access at home. Potential is everywhere. Visit a Sprint Store or
http://www.1millionproject.org to see how you can help, too.
