America Reads listens!
The need for America Reads in our community has increased since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Children traditionally experience some regression over the summer break, but the school closures that occurred in March and lasted throughout the summer had a much larger impact. The learning regression in students has been referred to “The Covid Slide”. The students who were already behind in reading have fallen even further behind. Some students have fallen two whole grade levels since the COVID-19 pandemic caused schools to close.
All information obtained from the ‘Covid Slide’: Struggling Tennessee Students Have Fallen Even Further Behind, Say Superintendents (2020)
