Summer vacation is winding down and students will soon head back to school, but does a long summer holiday still make sense for students today?
Joining the discussion about how the summer break affects learning, achievement, independent reading and more are:
- Michele Tine, education department chair and associate professor at Dartmouth College.
- Stephen Hyde, a former middle school teacher and counselor who founded The Shader Croft School, a private nonprofit summer program to build literacy skills in income-eligible and special needs students.
- Sam Maskell, Youth Services Librarian at the Rockingham Free Public Library in Bellows Fall.
