Summers Are for Learning.
Borman, Geoffrey
Principal, v80 n3 p26-29 Jan 2001
Cumulative learning losses over summer vacations are particularly detrimental to poorer children's reading achievement. By extending the relatively short 180-day U.S. school year, proactive and coordinated summer-school programs can help prevent "summer slide," closing test-score gaps and allowing children the extra learning time they need.
