Make summer school more like summer camp
Each summer, students can lose up to three months of learning, according to research collected by the nonprofit think tank, RAND Corporation. And by ninth grade, much of the achievement gap in reading — meaning the difference between the most and least proficient readers — is attributable to the compounding impacts of summer learning loss. That means teachers can spend up to a month in the fall reviewing materials taught the previous school year.
