Second Round Findings (Released September 2016) – October 11, 2016


Following up on the near-term findings from Winter 2014, this new report presents longitudinal data on most rigorous national study to date on summer learning. The findings show that students who attend voluntary 5-week, academically focused summer learning programs at high rates earned a clear advantage in math, reading, and social-emotional skills over their non-participating peers, and that these academic advantages persist over the school year.
