NCLB-Related Tutoring Inadequately Studied

Insufficient research is available to support the continued use of the Supplemental Education Services provision of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, concludes a report by the Education Policy Research Unit at the University of Arizona in Mesa.

The provision requires school districts that have failed to meet adequate yearly progress benchmarks for three years in a row to pay for after-school tutoring services. But the report says that "existing research offers little information about specific conditions that support positive outcomes" from supplemental education services. It calls for further research about the effects of the provision.
