160 DISPLACED STUDENTS IN NEWARK STILL NEED ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY
Across Newark there are 160 displaced students who live in shelters and motels. Jacqueline Vargas, a student herself and the mother of two children, ages 13 and 8 discusses the digital divide.
A slight majority of Newark parents are satisfied with their children’s remote learning work — but they’re also worried their children will fall behind academically during the school shutdown, a new poll shows.
We all need to do our part to bridge this critical gap, or COVID-19 will continue to further divide our communities between haves and have-nots.
