As schools shift from classroom instruction to online learning, parents without internet access worry their children will fall behind.
Alberta Ramirez, a mother who lives near Owassa Road, said her family didn’t have internet access or computers before the coronavirus pandemic.
After the coronavirus struck the Rio Grande Valley, she started paying $70 per month for internet — a significant part of the family’s income.
Her children share an iPad, which they use to complete schoolwork.
“I want the best for my kids, which will need to start with a fair access to education,” Ramirez said.
Ramirez isn’t alone. Education experts also worry children without internet access will fall behind.
