Not all towns are created equal, digitally

 

January 27, 2017



GREELEY, Colo. — Inside a high-ceilinged library at Northridge High School here, seniors are typing on 16-year-old laptops donated by a local Rotary Club. Some of the computers are missing keys. Others are cracked. Many have already broken down multiple times.

It is “college day,” and the students in this old farming town 60 miles north of Denver are applying to a handful of state universities and community colleges, their transcripts printed out for quick review. Most hope to eventually land tech-related jobs. But many have no computers at home. And their cash-strapped school district has struggled to provide them with even the most basic digital tools.
