The city of Detroit has always suffered when it came to the school district now, the city is receiving assistance to help with providing supplies that our children need.

There is a new campaign to help the divide between what children in the city receive and what children in the suburbs receive.

No child should be left behind and suffer because they do not have the proper supplies that they need to be successful.

This program provides a fifty-dollar internet access credit and a one-time one hundred dollar subsidy for a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet.

This campaign is for students that need it the most, this will be very beneficial to a lot of families that are currently in need.

In an article called "Detroit starts monthly internet stipend and laptop subsidy for residents" by Fox 2 News elaborated on how the program started.

Fox 2 News stated "The EBB 313 program streamlines access to the Emergency Broadband Benefit, a federal program that subsidizes the cost of internet and technological devices for eligible households, which include those at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines or that participate in certain assistance programs.

However, the application process requires internet at nearly every step, creating a barrier for those most in need of support, according to Darienne Hudson, president and chief executive of the United Way for Southeastern Michigan."

This takes education to a new level because it showing children that they are important and that their education is a priority.

How do you think this will benefit the city of Detroit?
