Summertime indeed means sun and fun, but learning should hardly take a vacation. Many students, especially those from underserved communities, lose up to two to three months of grade-level equivalency in math, reading, and other academic skills over the summer months due to the phenomenon known as the summer slide. The National Summer Learning Association (NSLA), Learning Heroes (LH), and National PTA (PTA) have partnered, for the first time, around this critical issue. Together, these national organizations have designed a robust and research-based toolkit for PTAs, along with teachers and principals, to keep youth safe, healthy, and engaged in learning during the critical summer months.
