Digital divide: 'My children's classroom is a car park' Digital divide: 'My children's classroom is a car park' no Close During the coronavirus pandemic, life has turned to the internet. But not everyone has it. That’s why Jamie Gould has found herself driving her two children out to a parked school bus on the side of the road to access WiFi so they can make it to virtual class. They spend eight hours of their day working from inside the family van, with no access to a bathroom and with the car running for air conditioning.
