Tutoring as an Emergency Response and Recovery Strategy
January 2021

“Tutoring is an intervention increasingly under discussion—and with good reason. It is one of the few educational strategies that we know works for almost all kids,” writes 50CAN’s Policy Advisor Liz Cohen in a new memo to our executive directors.“ States don’t have to wait to see if these national ideas get traction. As additional federal relief funding begins to flow, they have an opportunity to lead the way forward by ensuring those dollars support programs that immediately help students and families.”

The policy memo outlines five principles for effective tutoring programs and offers four options for scaling up tutoring right now to help kids:

    1. Post-secondary partnerships
    2. Community-based learning pods
    3. Leveraging paraprofessionals
    4. Reimagining virtual learning
