Horizons@GT embarking on its third year of bringing low-income students to Georgia Tech’s campus.
For low-income students, summer is a critical time. Many education experts say that is the time of year when underserved K-12 students fall behind their classmates. While other middle and upper class students are taking family vacations and heading off to summer camp, many low-income students are left at home unengaged. The lack of activity leads to a “summer slide,” a term used to describe what happens when these students return from their vacation and are behind their other classmates in reading, math and science. Many of these students will never catch up.
