What Happens to Children During the Summer?
Research spanning 100 years has proven that all young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. The problem is particularly acute with disadvantaged children, who tread water at best or even fall behind. It's what we call SUMMER SLIDE, while better off children build their skills steadily over the summer months.
