EdNext Podcast: Changing How We Study Summer Learning Loss

How much does summer vacation disrupt student learning and how much does it contribute to achievement gaps?

In this episode, David M. Quinn of the Rossier School of Education at USC joins EdNext Editor-in-chief Marty West to discuss how researchers analyze summer learning loss and how it varies by student background.

Quinn wrote “Summer Learning Loss: What Is It, and What Can We Do About It?,” with Morgan S. Polikoff as part of the Evidence Speaks series.
