Summer Learning Loss Presentation a Hit with Parents
- June 10, 2014
“Summer learning loss” was explored before a standing-room-only crowd at an NEF-sponsored panel in May. Local experts provided data about summertime loss and offered practical suggestions for keeping skills sharp in math (bring playing cards to the beach or track baseball statistics) and literacy (let kids stay up late to read). They also reminded parents to balance academic achievement with relaxation, exploration, and fun. For speakers’ slide presentations, see NEF’s Facebook Page.
