The United Federation of Teachers has been approved by the New York state education department to begin offering free tutoring for students in New York City public schools that are not meeting their achievement goals under the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

The 140,000-member affiliate of the American Federation of Teachers now joins close to 50 private companies and community-based agencies that are providing “supplemental educational services” under the law.

New York state already had approved the Rochester Teachers Association to provide those services to poor and low-performing students in the 36,500-student Rochester district. And in Ohio, the Toledo Federation of Teachers is providing tutoring in that 35,600-student district.

The UFT plans to begin its tutoring program in the fall.
