A new blog post from Brookings focuses on ameliorating summer learning loss—a phenomenon that is especially relevant after spring’s disrupted learning. The authors suggest bolstering tutoring programs that pair college students or recent graduates with K-12 students. This approach not only provides a crucial tutoring service for young students but also creates needed job opportunities for young adults.

Brookings reports on best practices that for scaling up these programs and the effectiveness of one-on-one, personalized high-dosage tutoring. #covid-19 #education
