Calif. school district puts Wi-Fi on wheels to close digital divide

The bus essentially works as a large mobile hot spot, thanks to Coachella Valley school district superintendent Darryl Adams.

He’s a former rock musician, who believes technology is the key to a quality education. Under his direction, Coachella became the first school district in the country to put iPads in the hands of every student — Pre-K to 12th grade.

But that’s when Adams uncovered a new problem: most of his students, like Anisa, don’t have Internet at home.

“I would be here sometimes on Friday night and drive by school and there would be parents with kids in the car sitting there doing their homework.”

More than 95 percent of the students there live below the poverty line. Many just can’t afford Internet access at home.

High school senior Michelle Penital said she would go to Starbucks when she needed Internet access. “I would do my homework with my friends.”

Obama tells Fox News: ‘Republicans have their own TV station’

"There's no doubt that I feel frustrated about it," the president said. "Number one, we're still shell shocked from what happened in 2007-2008... People lost homes, lost jobs, lost life savings and they still don't fully know how that happened and was the system fixed in a way they can have confidence in."

Wallace wondered why Obama had not "fixed that in eight years."

"The perception is going to be changing over time as people see results," Obama replied. "But -- and this is the big but -- nobody is going to be 100 percent satisfied in a democracy like ours with every outcome."

"And I think the danger both among Republicans and among Democrats who just listen to each other or they just listen to people that already agree with them -- you know, Republicans have their own TV station," he noted.

"Go ahead," Wallace interrupted. "You can say Fox News."

"They've got their own publications, their own blogs," the president continued. "Democrats, same thing. Increasingly what happens is, we don't hear each other. And so what happens then is when Republicans promise to repeal Obamacare and it doesn't get repealed, they're outraged.


Who wants change?
