Access to online education alternatives are not available to all young people.  This article from the UK is insightful into the plight of many people around the globe who have limited access to the technology needed to engage in successful online learning.

As many as 100,000 students risk falling behind with their studies because they do not have suitable devices or internet access at home, the Association of Colleges (AoC) has revealed.

As a result, the organisation is calling on the government to offer a “renewed support package” to students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Without such help, the organisation fears that the gulf in educational opportunity between these students and their peers will continue to widen.
