    That rips your heart out. It is so true here. I read that 80% of one elementary school qualified for free meals. Doubtful that the families had the ability to provide internet service. They are struggling to keep a roof over their heads. It all goes back to decent jobs to have the ability to better ones family.

    Every library, even our 4 book one, has a least one computer for the public to use.
    Now you're going to say the kids can't get to the library.
    Keep making excuses.

    Are there computers for every kid to use who doesn't have access to one at home? Are the libraries open in the evenings and nights? My grandson had homework in the 3D grade requiring access to a computer, if he didn't have access how does an 8 year old get themselves to a library across town? If the public schools require this, they need to also insure students have equipment and access...same as books are provided. You can't expect to break the cycle of poverty and ignorance without the tools to do so. Schools are now issuing computers, to those students without internet access, they need to also issue those cards like we had years ago that we used to log onto the Internet when traveling with laptops (for the life of me, I can't remember what they were called.)

    Keep making excuses.
    Libraries if they are open close around 5-7 pm. Have perhaps 4 computers. Flagler Beach library has been closed for about a year.

    "Excuses"? For no decent jobs? Elected officials who make no attempt to attract them. Schools who do not educate and prepare students for a decent job. A unskilled workforce attracts unskilled jobs. Look what is being built. More sandwich shops with minimum wage jobs.

    But that is good thing for the repubs. They don't want a educated voter. You and wiz make that point abundantly clear.

    Every kid over 8 has a smartphone or access to one.
    Even parents receiving state and government help have smartphones with data access.
