The National Summer Learning Association Research Advisory Council brings together the nation’s foremost researchers on youth, education, and out-of-school time to take stock of the current research on summer learning and develop a new research agenda for the field.
With these experts, NSLA synthesizes and publishes research briefs that illustrate the problem of summer learning loss and the positive impact of a variety of supports and interventions during the summer in helping to address inequities and close the achievement gap.
