The New York City public schools may be misrepresenting the ability that some providers of tutoring services under the No Child Left Behind Act have to serve English-language learners, concludes a report by Advocates for Children of New York.

The 1.1 million-student school system lists 80 approved providers of supplemental education services under the federal education law.

Two additional respondents were unsure if they had services for English-language learners.
