I’ve heard this one more than once and I’ve been puzzled, myself, how it can be. But here’s a good perspective on the issue by a teacher who works with pook kids. Yes, they have cell phones, but what don’t they have?
What we don’t realize is that with the technology we have today, and the cost of obtaining computers, printers, and an internet connection, our poor kids are being left further and further behind. One in five kids doesn’t have enough to eat, let alone wi-fi at their apartment.
