ABSTRACT
This article reports that the U.S. Department of Education will allow the Chicago school district to provide tutoring under the No Child Left Behind Act. Similar deals were said to be in the works to enable nine other large urban school districts to run their own tutoring programs, even if they have failed to meet state academic goals, a factor that normally bars them from being providers. The September 1, 2005 announcement marked the second time in one week that Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings enabled more flexibility around tutoring.
