RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J., May 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents across the country have been faced with the reality of school closures and an interruption in their children's learning. As we head into the summer months, parents aren't just worried about the "summer slide," as the disruption in the school year may have already created what experts are calling a "COVID Slide." Considering that many students haven't been in a typical classroom setting with a full load of classwork since March, parents are now left wondering if their children will be ready for the new school year in the fall.

According to the Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA), previous seasonal learning loss research shows that during a typical summer break, regression tends to be steeper for math than for reading, and the decline itself is typically more severe in older grades. A report released by the NWEA suggests that because of the break from the classroom caused by COVID-19, there's a risk for some students returning to school in the fall with only 70 percent of the reading knowledge they acquired from the previous school year, and just half of what they learned in math.
To combat math and reading loss, Kumon—the world's largest after-school math and reading program—is offering Free Registration at participating centers from May 1-July 15. Kumon goes beyond typical tutoring, by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted math and reading curriculum. Kumon's time-tested self-learning program uses engaging worksheets to present new concepts and materials.
