June 19, 2019

Emily Barack reporting for Education Dive writes that, “a new RAND Corp. publication identifies 43 summer programs that meet the top three tiers of the Every Student Succeeds Act’s (ESSA) evidence standards.” In the analysis of the “Investing in Successful Summer Programs” report, “the researchers found that there are summer program models that lead to a variety of positive outcomes including student learning, social and emotional development and career skills. But most programs were not able to improve all outcomes being measured.”
