Keep the Faucet Flowing: Summer Learning and Home Environment.
Entwisle, Doris R.; Alexander, Karl L.; Olson, Linda Steffel
American Educator, v25 n3 p10-15,47 Fall 2001
Discusses what three researchers discovered about schools, home environments, and inequitable education, examining the achievement gap between middle-class and poor, minority students and noting that summer school does little to close the gap. Suggests a strategy to boost the summer achievement of poor children that would give them the extra resources that middle-class parents provide for their children. (SM)
