Summer reading good exercise for kids
from The Hamilton Spectator
McMaster University sociology professor Scott Davies is leading a landmark study funded by Ontario's Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat. It's the largest study ever done in Canada into the 'summer setback' in literacy, experienced primarily by students in low-income families. The study finds that children in well-off, educated families tend to become better readers over the summer break, but students in less-affluent, less-educated families lose substantial ground while school's out.
