Supplemental Education Services under No Child Left Behind: Who Signs up, and What Do They Gain?
Heinrich, Carolyn J.; Meyer, Robert H.; Whitten, Greg
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v32 n2 p273-298 Jun 2010
Schools that have not made adequate yearly progress in increasing student academic achievement are required, under No Child Left Behind (NCLB), to offer children in low-income families the opportunity to receive supplemental educational services (SES). In research conducted in Milwaukee Public Schools, the authors explore whether parents and students are aware of their eligibility and options for extra tutoring under NCLB, and who among eligible students registers for SES. Using the best information available to school districts, the authors estimate the effects of SES in increasing students' reading and math achievement. Their nonexperimental estimates suggest no average effects of SES attendance on student achievement gains. They use qualitative research to explore possible explanations for the lack of observed effects. (Contains 21 notes, 8 tables, and 1 figure.)
