    Access to some data is certainly better than no access be it paper or digital. Legacy information is rather static, it's simply the newer events that would be missing. My comment is more geared towards the perception that these lower income students may not have access to data or the hardware to make that connection. I find that perception to be a bit outdated as well. We have multiple family members that work in the ER at the hospitals here in Chicago, and California. 75% of the people running through there are on some type of aid or assistance from the government as evident from their form of payment, yet they have iPhone 5's, Galaxy III's and mini-iPads, along with the latest Adidas, Fendi, PUMA, and other high end apparel / shoes. Each one of these digital devices are capable of grabbing the latest info to help them thrive in a school environment. The question is, are these being used in that way, or could they?
