OPPORTUNITY GAP

Low-income students have less access to academic opportunities compared to their higher-income peers. This is especially true in the summer. The lack of summer learning accounts for half of their achievement gap.

ACHIEVEMENT GAP

Throughout the summer, low-income students lose more than two months of math and reading skills, while their middle-income peers make gains. This creates an achievement gap that we can’t ignore.

WEALTH GAP

As students go from grade to grade, the achievement gap gets wider. As adults, the low-income students take lower skilled jobs, creating an increasing wealth gap and continuing the cycle with the next generation.
