Independent Book Authors in the Metropolitan Area
My current project is working on a news story for Independent Voter News. (www.ivn.us) The story is about the Digital Divide. Or more simply, the lack access to Internet and technology by the economically dis-advantaged. There are a lot of poor people without Internet connectivity at home. As a result many poor students are falling behind in the classroom. Today's classroom is becoming more and more technology centered. Education is moving in new directions and the wealthy have a distinct advantage becuase they can afford the laptops, tablets and other technologies. America has fallen behind much of the world in education because of this. Contrary to the first President Bush we are leaving children behind.
