Pledge to #KeepKidsLearning!

Research shows that summers without quality learning opportunities put our nation’s youth at risk for falling behind – year after year – in core subjects like math and reading. The math and reading skills low-income students lose each summer are cumulative and contribute significantly to the achievement gap between lower- and higher-income kids.

By fifth grade, cumulative years of summer learning loss can leave low-income students 2 1/2 to three years behind their peers. 

Many kinds of high-quality learning opportunities during the summer can make a difference in stemming learning loss, and ultimately closing the country’s achievement gap. 

On June 17th, we’ll create an online groundswell with a Thunderclap calling for communities across the nation to level the playing field by keeping ALL KIDS learning this summer. 

Donate one Tweet or Facebook post to encourage everyone to #KeepKidsLearning!

HOW TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT:
  1. At the top of the page, sign up for the campaign via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or all three.
  2. Visit www.summerlearningday.org and pledge to keep the kids in your life learning this summer.
  3. Rally your family, friends, colleagues, and everyone you know to do the same and join the movement to #KeepKidsLearning.
