For many children, summer is a time to enjoy camps, sports lessons, and family vacations. But for low-income children, summer isn’t carefree. As Matthew Boulay, Founder and CEO of the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) puts it, “Summer can be a time of isolation,... hunger,... and boredom.” And he says, “Summer can also be a time of academic loss.” Research has long shown that students can fall behind academically when they are not in school. That so-called summer slide is especially a problem for low-income students. Studies indicate that summer learning loss adds up year after year. Boulay says there needs to be a national commitment towards summer learning programs to help close those gaps, but he says there are also simple things school districts can do on their own.
