Bridging the digital divide

It’s time to even the odds for kids living in poverty, for youth in foster care, for students struggling to keep up simply because they lack tech access and skills.

Reality: Underserved students living in poverty are twice as likely to drop out of school. They struggle to keep up with their peers. If they graduate, few have higher ed or career plans.

By the numbers:

  • 80 percent of U.S. teachers say e-learning increases the quality of education.
  • 80 percent of Fortune 500 companies only accept employment applications online
  • Knowledge of Microsoft Office applications ranks third in the top 20 in-demand career skills.
  • More than 6 million students in the U.S. take online classes.

And yet nearly half of the poorest households in the U.S. do not own a computer.
