  • Our Policy Position | Tutor Our Children
    eligible students have a right to tutoring under current federal law The US Department of Education should be enforcing this right rather than eliminating it through waivers that ignore parental rights and student needs Tutoring must be available to the students who need it To protect the rights of parents and to promote the achievement of children in our lowest performing schools this important lifeline must continue Tutoring must be funded and the mission of Title I must be preserved Under current federal law 20 of federal Title 1 funds are intended to be set aside for Federally Funded Tutoring These funds should be used for their intended purpose to preserve the educational safety net by providing targeted assistance to the most vulnerable students Parent choice is essential When parents are more engaged in their children s education their children do better in school Parents who choose tutoring are more involved and more committed to their child s education Parent choice also is critical for holding tutoring programs accountable for results Latest Post CORE WAIVER SHORTCHANGES CALIFORNIA S MOST VULNERABLE STUDENTS August 7 2013 Op ed Lack of tutoring services contributed to MSA score declines July 30 2013 House ESEA
