Lack of Internet service makes it difficult for students to complete homework, creating a “homework gap”, which places students without access at a disadvantage when compared to their peers who do have such access.

EveryoneOn can help you find low-cost internet and affordable computers in your area.
Access from AT&T can help lower the cost of internet services for qualifying households.
