Two-thirds of the 16 million children living in poverty in this country don’t own any books, so when school lets out for the year, reading and learning does not just take a vacation, it deteriorates. This deterioration is known as “summer learning loss,” or “summer slide,” and it is disastrous, particularly for impoverished children.

New data show that New York City had 163,000 students on charter school waitlists last year — more than any other city in the country.
