Abstract
The summer reading setback is a major driver of educational inequality across British Columbia. This capstone research project examines educational inequality in the province and analyzes policy options to reduce the growth of summer educational achievement gaps. The analysis focuses on three international case studies, with a literature review and interviews that confirm the results. The policy options considered include targeted summer programs in low-achieving schools, targeted summer programs across the province, and the expansion of existing summer reading programs in libraries.
