Over summer, many kids forget some of what they learned during the school year. But “summer slide” is particularly steep for low-income youth and a leading cause of the achievement gap between them and more affluent students. Fortunately, some high-quality programs have been shown to reduce that loss. And some cities and states are taking steps to start to help.
Register for a webinar on Reducing Summer Learning Loss: Implementing Successful Programs, co-sponsored by The Wallace Foundation and the National League of Cities, and you’ll learn from Child Trends Research Scientist Mary Terzian and National Summer Learning Association CEO Ron Fairchild, as well as two officials working with their mayors to solve the problem in their cities: Sabrina Sutton (Baltimore, MD) and Maxine Quintana (Denver, CO).
