Education programs aimed at stopping ‘summer slide’

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Department of Education has two new options for parents worried about “summer slide.”
The department is partnering with an educational research group to provide free reading recommendations and a six-week mathematics program designed to stop the loss of knowledge during summer vacation.
The Find A Book NH program allows parents to enter their child’s grade level and subject interest to get a list of book suggestions. The Summer Math Challenge involves daily activities emailed to parents based on a student’s grade.
