A local initiative wants to help kids continue learning through the summer.
The city partnered with “Mission: Graduate Summer Learning” on Tuesday at Los Duranes Community Center.
The group says low income students fall two to three years behind by the time they reach fifth grade from not learning during the summer months.
Leaders met with parents across Albuquerque to give them fresh ideas on how to change that.
“What we’re trying to do is close the summer learning gap by ensuring that students have access to summer learning programs and opportunities throughout the summer so they start school ready to learn from day one in the fall,” said Angelo Gonzales with Mission: Graduate.
