Georgia Announces 2014 Summer Reading Initiative
Summer is on its way, but that shouldn't mean books are left on the shelf. When students don't read during the summer months, they lose educational ground - a phenomenon that lowers achievement potential and widens the achievement gap. To ensure that Georgia's students don't fall behind while school is out of session, the Georgia Department of Education is working with other agencies to encourage summer reading. More details are provided here.
