But the students also need access to the Internet when they are not at school. About (15)____________ percent of students in Fairfax County do not have a computer or online access at home. Stephen Castillo is one of them.
STEPHEN CASTILLO: “Pretty much I go to, like, the library, I guess, or go to a friend’s house.”
