Stop Summer Academic Loss

Official Dosomething.org Project

The Problem

For most public schools in Philadelphia, Pa, children who get out of school for the summer and do not retain academic lessons learned for the 2-3 months of summer break. Who then, enter school in the fall struggling to focus and remember what they learned in the previous grade that would preapare them to better understand lessons taught in Sepetember. If we prevent academic loss in the summer, then September won't be a month wasted on 30 days of review and classroom management strategies.

Plan of Action

Have kids in summer programs that are academically interactive and challenging to keep them learning but in a fun way so they can still feel like they are on break. This way they are on alert to recieve instruction in September.
