Research from NWEA shows that students may return to school this fall with “roughly only 70% of the learning gains in reading relative to a typical school year and less than 50% of the gains in math.” This summer, there are more online resources for families to help keep their students learning. Celebrate National Summer Learning Week by checking out resources from Khan Academy, Ed Navigator, Class in Session With Jeb Bush, Learning Heroes, National Summer Learning Association and Wide Open School.
