Happy summer—and happy Summer Learning Day! Yes, June 21 isn’t just the summer solstice (in the Northern Hemisphere) this year; it’s also the day to raise awareness of summer learning efforts and their benefits.
The goal of Summer Learning Day is “to focus attention on how summer learning programs help close the achievement gap and promote healthy development,” the National Summer Learning Association says. (NSLA is a major proponent of the day.)
