SALT LAKE CITY - A new report indicates up to 3 million students in the United States struggle to stay on top of homework because they have no access to the internet at home.

According to The Associated Press, these students exist in a "homework gap," where 17 percent of students in the U.S. don't have access to a computer at home, while 18 percent of students don't have access to the internet.
