Study: Federal Tutoring Helping Students

Nancy Zuckerbrod:

Taxpayer-funded tutoring for poor children is paying off in some city schools, a federal study has found. Students who received the tutoring under the federal No Child Left Behind law improved on reading and math tests, according to the study conducted by independent researchers for the Department of Education and released Wednesday.
Students in schools that fail to hit academic targets for three years in a row are given free tutoring under the 2002 education law.
