It’s called the “summer brain drain,” and it’s affecting students of all ages. During the long, hot months away from school, kids lose knowledge when they don’t engage in educational activities over the summer vacation. On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills.
For students who do not continue their education throughout the summer undergo major repercussions of learning loss all the way up to high school. By not being able to fill skill gaps, it becomes more difficult for them to stay on track and fall behind. Over one million students in the class of 2010 failed to graduate with a high school diploma. Currently, the national graduation rate stands at a dismal 75 percent, due in part to the 15 million youth unsupervised after the school day ends and an additional 24 million in need of supervision during the summer.
