Summer Learning 

What happens when learning takes a vacation during summer break?  Research shows that summers without quality learning opportunities hold our nation's youth back -- year after year -- in core subjects like math and reading, and in life experiences like college and career exposure.  In fact, the math and reading skills low-income students lose each summer are cumulative and contribute significantly to the achievement gap between lower -and higher-income students.See the National Summer Learning Association's (NSAL) new 'Summer by the Numbers' infographic.
