Research

NAYRE throughout the years has encouraged research on year-round education and has served as a clearing house for information related to calendar reform as well as all issues that involve time and learning.  The goal of NAYRE is to stem learning loss that typically occurs after long periods of non-instruction such as the traditional 3-month summer break. This site contains downloadable presentations on the basics of calendar reform as well as selected studies on time and learning.
