What Is Summer Learning Loss?

Without practice, students tend to lose the skills and information they learn in school. The average student, for example, loses an average of 2.6 months of math learning over the summer. At the beginning of a new school year, teachers typically spend three to four weeks reteaching material from the previous year.

Educators have struggled to combat this “summer slide” for years. Without the effort and input of parents, however, summer learning loss tends to accrue, turning into an achievement gap that can leave some kids two to three years behind their peers.

Avoiding summer brain drain requires taking steps to keep students engaged in their learning all summer long with summer online schools.

Even the most dedicated students look forward to the “no more pencils, no more books” freedom of summer. But the break from study can weaken important skills. Fortunately, with summer school courses from Pearson Online Academy, a fully-accredited, tuition-based online school for grades K–12, students can avoid losing what they’ve learned while still enjoying family, friends, and vacation!
