The article discusses the Coalition for Access to Educational Resources, which is an advocacy group that wants the supplementary education services (SES) provision of the U.S. No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) to be changed. A bill they are supporting would require schools to inform parents that tutoring is available and that a percentage of NCLB funds pay for the SES. The proposal is sponsored by Representative Howard P. McKeon.
