The summer slide. No, it’s not a hot, new piece of playground equipment. It’s that time during summer vacation when kids spend more time lounging and less time learning and playing — resulting in a loss of knowledge. Research shows the average student may fall behind up to two months in reading and math skills during the summer months (Summer Learning).
