Why Is Summer Reading Important?

There is current research that shows that without summer reading:

  • At best, students showed little or no academic growth over summer.
  • At worst, students lost one to three months of learning.
  • For disadvantaged students, reading scores were disproportionately affected and the achievement gap between rich and poor widened.
