Combatting Covid-Slide:
The Academic Approach to Math Skill Building

Research on learning loss draws attention principally to math.

Students entering School Year 2020-21 may be returning with an unprecedented gap in learning, perhaps less than 50% of math curriculum retained from the prior school year.
