Poor and Dumb

Tutoring is available for kids who get free lunch. Do you have to be poor to need extra academic help?

If you're middle class you get no services from schools. My son has private tutors, and I paid for speech therapy privately as well. Why are only "free lunch" kids eligible for tutoring? Other kids need academic help as well!!

The parents get several choices of the type of tutoring they want for their children including tutoring at home. When my student came to school and told me that the "teacher" came to her house ,I
almost" fell off my word wall!!!!"
After she so happily made her statement ,five other students also chimed in and said they have the "teacher" too.

I know many students who come from a financially stable background. Their parents are easily able to get them private tutors for any subject they are struggling in. I suppose the reason tutoring is being aimed at lower income students in your school would be that they are the ones that can't afford private tutoring. The state is most likely trying to save as much money as possible.

Not getting free lunch does not mean a parent can shell out $80 an hour for a private tutor.
