KBYU Eleven offers free RESOURCES TO Fuel learning this summer
This summer, KBYU Eleven will provide families with a variety of free and educational resources to encourage young learners to continue learning and exploring over summer vacation. Research shows that students experience significant learning loss when they do not participate in educational activities during the summer months, and that loss is even greater among children in low-income communities. To combat this summer slump, PBS KIDS has developed 10 weeks of special on-air programming, a variety of online resources, and partnerships with Pottery Barn Kids, Education.com, Scholastic and Grandparents.com.
Check out these links for PBSKids.org, PBSParents.org, Education.com, and KBYUtv.org for learning activities, apps, and games to help your child enjoy learning.

Perhaps you know of people whose lives are intimately affected by disabilities. Perhaps it's you. One issue surrounding those with disabilities is education and the trend of inclusion. Inclusion is the practice of involving those with disabilities in a mainstream classroom. Parents, students, and teachers are all affected by inclusion and opinions are varied.
