According to my local paper, eleven Illinois school districts must stop after-school tutoring sessions because (you guessed it) the districts are underperforming. (Sorry, I can't find a link)

Call me crazy, but if the districts are failing shouldn't they increase their after-school tutoring program? That would make sense to me. However, the No Child Left Behind act says differently. According to NCLB:

Now this makes sense. According to the article:

Under NCLB, the federal money used for after-school tutoring must now be used to pay private companies to do the job of trained teachers. Yet another way the Bush administration is funneling money to private businesses and further depleting the resources of the schools that need it most.
