‘Homework gap’ shows millions of
students lack home internet

With no computer or internet at home, Raegan Byrd’s homework assignments present a nightly challenge: How much can she get done using just her smartphone? On the tiny screen, she switches between web pages for research projects, losing track of tabs whenever friends send messages. She uses her thumbs to tap out school papers, but when glitches keep her from submitting assignments electronically, she writes them out by hand. “At least I have something, instead of nothing, to explain the situation,” said Raegan, a high school senior in Hartford.


Here we go again. The 'study' says students with homes with home internet do better than those without. Of course, there could be far more reasons for their achievement. There is mention of doing homework on their phones. If it's that important, give up the phones and get internet. Watch your wallet.

Those of us who grew up without cell phones and the internet learned to read, write, and do math. We used the library, our encyclopedias, and pencil and paper. We learned to read with Dick and Jane and learned to love reading. We memorized our multiplication tables and took handwriting. We fought in WW11 and made History which we were later taught. We learned good grammar and how to write a good paragraph. We learned how to think critically. The internet was suppose to make our lives easier and to make us smarter. What happened on the way to a good education? Our government got invoved and messed everyone up. Now third graders can't read or write. They rely completely on the internet and in the process, isolate themselves. Now we have lonely children committing suicide when other children and adults bully them over the internet. Go figure.

Students don't have to learn anything they are not interested in. They can look up the (PC) answers on the internet! Besides, it's worse than millions. Until recent history, NO students had internet! How did we send men to the Moon, write great novels and plays, compose great music, etc? Of course, we had REAL teachers in those days...

Sorry. A perfectly capable desktop computer (not cool, I know) is available to anyone for a third of the cost of many cell phones. This "gap" alert seems bogus to me.

I did ok growing up with no internet to do homework. Just imagine kids lives if they had black and white TV with only 7 channels coming in on your rooftop tv antenna. We were the first family on my block to get a color tv. So I guess now we are going to see a new charge on our tv internet and phone bills to pay for more free home internet for these poverty stricken little darlings.

And Number 5, those early tv's were so primitive and had so few channels that there were no such things as remotes and we actually had to get out of our seats to change channels and adjust the volume. Oh the humanity...

Every single library has computers and the internet. We didn't have encyclopedias at home when I was a kid. We went to the library. We managed to get through high school and college using that method.

Oh, really? How did so many of us manage for so many decades? We had to use the encyclopedia at the public library. We learned to do research the hard way. Remember card catalogs? Cursive writing? All that ole timey stuff that made us so resourceful, so self-sufficient?

FTA: At home, the family uses a satellite dish that costs $170 a month. It allows a certain amount of high-speed data each month and then slows to a crawl. So they have money for the satellite dish but not for a decent internet connection.

The folks from outside Starkeville, MS have internet access THROUGH the satellite dish. I live in a rural area and I had to go that route for years. Satellite internet access is slow, expensive and unreliable. Fortunately, cell coverage has increased into our area and I've gone to a cell based hotspot. We burn through 22 gigs in about 3 weeks and then have to put up with slowed speed for a week. 5G is coming, so we will be truly unlimited at that time. All that being said, kids can do their homework with resources available to them. The girl with the iPhone could buy an inexpensive computer and use her iPhone as a hotspot. Her granddaddy already pays for a plan that allows for that.

BS. The hidden Gore Tax has forced us to pay for families like Raegan Byrd's to have access to internet service. In 1996, Congress passed the Telecommunications Act, which included a provision championed by Al Gore to expand the definition of "universal service" to include high-tech services, and endow the FCC with a broad mandate to furnish schools and libraries with affordable service.

IIRC, my mother bought us a set of encyclopedias on a subscription. We had them while I was in school and there was a complete set to use. And with five kids in the family, they got a lot of use. I remember reading through them even when I didn't have homework to do just to see what was in them. We didn't have internet OR cable television when I was growing up. And yet, we survived and all made it through school without it. Our local library was a favorite trip and I was always carrying a book around (I still bring a book if I have an anticipated wait somewhere). If this child has a phone, she has access to the internet. There are now bluetooth keyboards that connect to a smartphone if she is worried about "writing" papers. And there are cheap home inkjet printers that also connect through bluetooth. It's a solid shame that whining to the press is so much easier than finding an available solution to a perceived problem.

We live in a rural area and have satellite internet. My son is just finishing community college and it's been a nightmare. Our access is spotty and not reliable so he spends a lot of time in the library and in McDonald's and various parking lots that he's learned have internet access, (all the rural kids figure this stuff out and let each other know where they can get wi-fi). The problem is that it is assumed that everyone has reliable internet and there aren't always accommodations offered to those that don't. Yesterday my son had a term paper due and took two hours trying to upload it and he missed the cutoff time. Fortunately, he had advised his teacher that uploading was often a problem for him so the teacher let him have the option to send it via email, (which uses less broadband than uploading). We often hear about kids in the inner city who don't have internet access but the struggle is worse for those in rural areas. Internet is available in the cities, it just needs to be paid for. In our case, no providers are interested in providing the service. We pay 4 times as much as people who live 4 miles away for terrible satellite service. Nobody cares because there aren't enough of us, and frankly, we tend to be conservative.

A few years ago, the LA schools put a laptop into the hands of every student enrolled. In short order, they were rendered useless because they did not take care of them and used them for non-academic purposes. The library is the place to get all of this--if you can unseat the porn-viewing groups.

I truly believe this article is the start of an attempt to get the Federal Government (we the taxpayers) to pony up for Internet access and computers for the poor. The Obamaphone started with a simple phone and the ability to call 911 or the police in an emergency. Now they have Obamasmartphones with up to 400 minutes, and the advertisement says that now you can stay in touch with the grandkids. How long before they'll have to have Facebook accounts and be exposed to more liberal slant?

There is an information source called a "textbook" which can contain everything needed for a basic education: read the chapters, do the exercises. If it's worth learning, it's been written down.

Youngest son is in college, built his own desktop computer, then conned me out of my laptop. I bought him a Samsung 9 cell phone, and he told me his 9 has more computing capacity than his PC and Laptop combined. About a decade ago, Governor Rendell of Pa bought laptops for all public h.s. students. The laptops were obsolete as they were unpacked. Finally, schools have printers available for students.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is spiking the political football after wrongly predicting how President Trump’s tariff threats against Mexico would pan out. Trump announced the agreement Friday evening. “I am pleased to inform you that The United States of America has reached a signed agreement with Mexico,” Trump tweeted Friday. “The Tariffs scheduled to be implemented by the U.S. on Monday, against Mexico, are hereby indefinitely suspended.” “Mexico, in turn, has agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of Migration through Mexico, and to our Southern Border,” he continued. “This is being done to greatly reduce, or eliminate, Illegal Immigration coming from Mexico and into the United States.”

In fifteen states and the District of Columbia, new Red Flag laws allow judges to take licensed firearms away from individuals even if they have not committed or even threatened to commit a crime. A simple petition from a third party triggers a court proceeding that could eliminate a person’s Second Amendment rights and cause a cascade of consequences. Florida is a good example of one of those states. Some civil rights organizations have expressed concern about constitutional principles being violated by such laws, such as the right to due process and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Red Flag laws seem intended to bypass processes that already exist

This claim is so stupid that I can’t even give it one of our coveted Green Weenie Awards: Racial Resentment May Be Fueling Climate Denial. After Barack Obama took office, white Americans were less likely to see climate change as a serious problem, according to a recent paper published in the journal Environmental Politics. The study further finds evidence of a link between racial resentment and climate change denial. This is not to suggest that all climate deniers are racists, merely that racial resentment may, in part, be driving climate denial. I got curious, naturally. Here’s the abstract of the underlying “academic” paper:

But at an elementary school in Oregon, a teacher is being accused of trying to push her sexual views and politics onto a student, all hidden from parents. To make matters worse, the student was only eight years old at the time. “Parents in Woodburn said their 8-year-old son was held back from recess multiple times for one-on-one conversations about his gender identity,”

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg knows firsthand the burden of six-figure student loan debt. He and his husband, Chasten, are far from alone, though, and their personal college indebtedness is helping to keep the issue on the national stage. With loans totaling more than $130,000, they are among the 43 million people in the United States who owe federal student loan debt. The debtors are so numerous and the total debt so high — more than $1.447 trillion, according to federal statistics — that several of the Democratic candidates have made major policy proposals to address the crisis.

AOC scoffed that a 2.5% bump in pay was “not even like a raise.” Before that, she grumbled that her income was merely a “living wage.” She also complained in a tweet that if lawmakers don’t get a raise, it “makes campaign finance reform *harder.* ” And it “increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.” It makes one wonder if AOC understands

California wants to look after its people, so it keeps expanding its social safety net. It also wants to welcome all comers and so embraces illegal immigrants and protects them in sanctuary cities. To see how this is working out, visit Skid Row in L.A. or neighborhoods in San Francisco or elsewhere where homeless camps are spreading. Caring for all Californians is made harder by the state importing as many non-Americans as possible. It's almost incredible, but also entirely characteristic, that California lawmakers have now decided to give healthcare free to nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants aged 19 to 25.
