The little girls use Taco Bell’s Wi-Fi for school, almost taken from mom
Taco Bell proved critical of two little girls who briefly used Wi-Fi for school ̵
1; something that almost turned out to be tragic after the children were nearly taken away from their mother.
A photo of two young girls sitting in front of Taco Bell in Salinas, California – right in front of Monterey – recently went viral … showing them collapsing on concrete with laptops and notebooks removed while two TB employees come to talk to them. This is quite sad.
Two students are sitting in front of Taco Bell to use Wi-Fi so they can “go to school” online.
This is California, home of Silicon Valley … but where the digital divide is as deep as ever.

The photo elicited a two-pronged response – one group was completely outraged by the lack of resources these children had, realizing that this was the best they could do in a desperate situation. On the other hand, some people were worried … thinking it was neglect.
In this first part, a handful of selected employees spoke in the photo … pointing out the digital divide between some under-represented communities. The area of the primary school in the town of Salinas adheres to the fact that the children are their students and said that it is already working to eliminate the situation by providing them with a hotspot with internet access.
As for the alleged neglect, this triggered a welfare check. According to members of the local community who intervened to help the family … they were almost separated by cops and CPS officers who apparently came to knock.

With regard to the concerned citizens who observed this, the officials conducted a search to see if there was any neglect / abuse of children. It sounds like they found zilch and ended up, but adding insult to the injury … the family is also about to be left homeless by their owner.
Fortunately, enough people gathered resources and accommodated them in a hotel for the moment as they got to their feet. They have even started GoFundMe for them too.
