National Summer Learning Association Convenes National Conversation on Summer and Afterschool Programs as Essential Investments in Helping America’s Students Thrive
Baltimore, MD (September 11, 2017) – Research shows that summers without quality learning opportunities hold our nation’s youth back – year after year – in core subjects like math and reading, making summer one of the most inequitable times of the year for millions of underserved students. And now, just as school is back in session, this inequality may only grow and the accompanying achievement gap may only get wider because of the threat of federal budget cuts that could take away out-of-school learning resources critical to academic success. With this environment as a backdrop, the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) is bringing together nearly 800 out-ofschool time providers, school district administrators, community leaders, funders, and thought leaders for its Summer Changes Everything™ conference on October 23-25th in Phoenix, Arizona.
