EWA Webinar: Reporting On Summer Learning

While students might be basking in a long summer break, that leisure time carries a heavy price tag: on average, students will return to school in the fall a month behind where they performed in the spring. And the learning loss is typically even greater for low-income students who were already behind their more affluent peers. 

Join us for an EWA Webinar on Tuesday, July 15 at 3 p.m. EDT for background and the latest research on this important issue. We’ll offer tips and story ideas to enrich your own reporting and look at how some districts are incorporating “student-centered learning” innovations into programs designed to mitigate summer learning loss. And we’ll share details from the newest addition to the EWA Topics pages: Summer Learning.

Joining us for the webinar will be: 

  • Nora Fleming, freelance education writer
  • Sarah Pitcock, chief executive officer, National Summer Learning Association
  • Chris Smith, executive director, Boston After School & Beyond

Space is limited, so register here today!
