Tutoring: Now That's A Bright Idea.

I am so sick of the tutoring debate, and you should be too, but there is a useful series of articles in EdWeek about what it's like and how it really works that might be worth checking out: Leveling the Playing Field (EdWeek), Huntington Learning Center (EdWeek), Youth Policy Institute Los Angeles (EdWeek), ABC-Learn West Hills, Calif. I can't stop myself.

There's also a piece out from the Chiefs about the broader issue: Using NCLB Funds to Support Extended Learning CCSSO (via PEN) PDF.
