Preventing summer brain drain
Whether you call it brain drain, the summer slide, or summer reading loss, the meaning is the same.
This summer, and every summer, children will forget much of what they learned the previous school year.
“They can lose two to 2 1/2 months of what they have already learned, plus three months over the summer when they aren’t learning anything new,” said Wendy Kunz, director of Sylvan Learning in Sycamore, which offers a number of summer learning and enrichment programs. “And think of the teachers who spend the month of September reviewing what the kids forgot over the summer.”
