Children Without Home Computers Face a Less Successful Future in Education and Work
Posted by: Justina Spencer
LONDON, February 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Children who grow up without access to the internet or computers in the home, are being left behind in their social and educational development and could lose out in the job market.

Now BLi Education, (http://www.blieducation.com/) in partnership with Government agency Becta*, is encouraging parents to take advantage of the Home Access programme to provide grants for computers and internet access to families that need them most.

Several studies over the past decade from bodies such as the Institute of Fiscal Studies and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, have shown that children with access to the internet at home are more likely to do better in subjects such as maths and may also get better exam results.
