While summer often spells out vacations and camps for many families, the end of the school year also marks the start of the "summer slide" in math and reading skills for millions of students across the country.
Younger kids from low-income families are especially at risk. Some are expected to fall behind in grade-level reading by two months every summer due to a lack of access to high-quality educational activities like camps and field trips. This makes it more challenging to catch up once the school year kicks off.
So hundreds of communities across the nation–from Seattle, Washington to Austin, Texas and Baltimore, Maryland–are joining together with the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) for National Summer Learning Day on July 14th.
