This book is an authoritative examination of summer learning loss, featuring original contributions by scholars and practitioners at the forefront of the movement to understand, and stem, the "summer slide". The contributors provide an up-to-date account of what research has to say about summer learning loss, the conditions in low-income children's homes, and communities that impede learning over the summer months, and best practices in summer programming with lessons on how to strengthen program evaluations. The authors also show how information or program costs can be combined with student outcome data to inform future planning and establish program cost-effectiveness. This book will help policymakers, school administrators, and teachers in their efforts to close academic achievement gaps and improve outcomes for all students. -- Provided by publisher.

"The issue of sexual assault on college campuses is the focus of growing attention--from headlines about out-of-control fraternities, to the mattress protests at Columbia University, to the cover-up of rape accusations against prominent college athletes like football star Jamie Winston. The Hunting Ground, the new documentary by award-winning filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, has taken the country's concern over campus assault to a new level, becoming a lightning rod for discussions following thousands of screenings on campuses around the country. The film has sparked calls for legislation by Senator Kristen Gillibrand and other prominent officials, been lauded by the White House, and unleashed backlash from university administrators, fraternities, and conservative media commentators. Now, in this companion book to the documentary film, readers will get behind-the-scenes details of how the film was created; hear the personal stories of women and men who've been assaulted; and meet experts on campus culture, fraternities, and university athletics who explain why this violence continues and what can be done to stop it. They will learn how leading writers and thinkers react to the film; how students, faculty, and alumni are standing up to their institutions; and what everyone can do to help effect change." -- Publisher

"Schooling has become a disaster. Your child's interests and uniqueness are disregarded, and structured curriculum and standards like Common Core place them on a conveyor belt that treats all children the same. This system crushes a child's curiosity. Your child deserves better! There is a better way: one that ensures your child sees learning as a joy and provides you, the parent, with a much less stressful way to educate and empower your son or daughter"
