National Summer Learning Day is tomorrow, July 14
Kids work hard to learn important skills like math and reading during the school year. But each summer, they can lose up to two months of those hard-earned skills. Summer learning loss puts kids at risk for not graduating high school, and can jeopardize their future. The National Summer Learning Association, School's Out Washington, Road Map Project and other local groups are working to change that, and will be hosting a bus tour to visit summer learning sites to stress why summer enrichment opportunities are so important for students.
