A Johns Hopkins study of Baltimore Public Schools found that students who don’t read over the summer “lose more than two months in reading achievement”. Most students lose “two months of grade-level equivalency” in math skills every summer. That’s about 30% of the progress they made over the previous the year.
A 1996 analysis of 39 studies on summer learning loss found that all students scored lower on standardized tests at the end of summer when compared to their performance on the same test at the beginning of the summer.
These studies also showed that summer learning loss is accumulative which means that students who didn’t participate in educational activities over their vacation got further and further behind each year.
