"While some students enjoy unlimited access to the Internet and other digital technology, there are other students, just as capable and full of potential, who struggle to learn even the basics of computer use due to a lack of access. Our world heavily relies on Internet technology for everyday communication, education, and work. Over time, students without Internet access will face massive disadvantages, including:
*Lack of basic research skills
*Lack of networking skills
*Inability or extreme difficulty in pursuing a degree in higher ed
*Difficulty searching and applying for jobs
*Insufficient qualifications for many jobs"
