Somewhere in inner-city Detroit, a seventh grader, whose school is closed due to the ongoing pandemic, stares blankly at her science worksheets. Reading at the third-grade level, she does not understand the assignment and without a home internet connection, she cannot reach her teacher for help. Instead, she settles into the couch and flicks on cartoons. That student – like all American children – deserves a full and quality education. Like many others, she is not getting one and the problem predates the schools’ shutdown due to COVID-19.
