Being a substitute teacher, I've been in hundreds of classrooms. At every level, kids are using the internet in projects and assignments. Sometimes they are required to use it at home, but that's not a possibility for all students. Comcast has now made internet available to low income families with children who qualify for the Free or Reduced lunch program, for $9.95 a month. There are no extra charges for equipment or setup. They are even offering those families computers for $149. If you know someone in need, or can share the information, visit http://www.internetessentials.com/
There are some catches. You must be in a Comcast customer area. You must not have had internet service through Comcast for 90 days. You can't owe Comcast any money.
