Title:The learning season: The untapped power of summer to advance student achievement
Organization:Nellie Mae Education Foundation
Short Description:This report reviews research in the area of summer learning, and argues that it has been shown that the achievement gap between poor and non-poor students can largely be traced to differences in the amount of educational ground children lose during the summer months. (The report notes that, in contrast, the racial/ethnic "achievement gap" seems to develop both during the school year and during the summer.) The author argues for the need for public policy to address the summer learning gap.
