Summer Programs and Children's Learning

Hour 1:           Could engaging summer programs close the achievement gap between high and low-income students and change the face of education in our country?  We’ll talk this hour with Catherine Augustine, Ph.D., senior policy researcher at the RAND Corporation and Ann Stone, Ph.D., senior research and evaluation officer at the Wallace Foundation. They’re in town to present the study “Making Summer Count: How Summer Programs Can Boost Children’s Learning” (Rand, 2012).
