According to a new study by the American Educational Research Association, more than half of the students tracked over a five-year period experienced learning loss over the summer months, averaging a loss of nearly 40 percent of their school year gains each summer.
The study’s authors expect that loss to be magnified by the disruption to in-school learning this year, comparing the period since March to an extended summer vacation for most students.
To help mitigate learning loss, we most often help students over the summer with their core skills – the ones that they will turn to time and again throughout high school and college.
