Tune in tonight when we discuss the”summer slide” and how to prevent it!

Students can lose up to a third of what they’ve learned over the summer—but there are ways to stop the summer slide and they can be a whole lot of fun. Join us tonight, June 8 from 7-8 p.m. on WJR when we hear great ideas from educators across the state, including Michigan’s newest Teacher of the Year. We’ll post some resources you can use with your own students–and we’d love to hear from you here–and on Facebook–about your own tricks of the trade. That’s tonight, on Voices of Michigan Education on WJR, NewsTalk 760.
