THE LEARNING CENTER
Summer Learning at STEC
Research shows that up to two-thirds of the achievement gap between low-income students and their higher income peers can be explained by unequal access to summer opportunities. The city of Boston, supported by public and private funds, works to expand access to high quality summer learning. Co-managed by Boston Public Schools and Boston After School & Beyond, this program draws on the strengths of teachers and leading program providers to deliver a full-day, integrated learning experience. Summer Learning at STEC aims to prevent “summer slippage” and shares the common goal of academic progress in math and language arts, and improvement in the ACT skills.
