Our Summer Learning Plan
After more than a decade of advocating for summer learning, I'm more conscious than ever about "practicing what I preach" and making sure that our kids have a fun and productive summer.

TenMarks Summer Math Program to Prevent Summer Learning Loss in Students
As summer vacation arrives parents may be rightfully concerned about their children undergoing summer learning loss, a process by which students start forgetting, over the course of the two-month break, much of what they learned in school.

TenMarks on The Balancing Act
In today's turbulent economic times, government agencies are continuously cutting back funding for important programs, including many dollars designated for education.
