From the Paper:

"According to Thornburg, bringing technology to students isn't as easy as it sounds. A reality known as the digital divide makes educational technology all the more important and more difficult to achieve. Lowensteyn and Thornburg both agree that the upper class of society is at the greater advantage in benefiting from technology and putting it to work for them. According to Thornburg, seventy percent of households with a combined income of $70,000 or greater have computers. At the same time only ten percent of households with a combined income of about $10,000 have a computer. The financial have-nots, as Thornburg refers to them, are also the informational have-nots. How do we bridge the gap? It falls upon the school systems and the teachers to prepare students for the technologically advanced workforce. "
