(2005-11-18) Nyc Kids Not Asking For Tutoring

NYC kids aren't applying for free tutoring. (Educating Kids In Nyc) Education officials said the agency has received applications for tutoring from 32,307 of the 205,322 kids who are eligible because they attend schools funded by federal poverty aid and failed to meet state standards.... The percentage of eligible kids whose parents do not sign them up prior to the start of the tutoring service has crept up slightly in each of the last two years, prompting criticism the city does not do enough to promote the benefit. Or maybe the parents have some responsibility?
