It seems officials are intending to actually enforce a provision of the No Child Left Behind act stating that schools that are not meeting the benchmarks set forth by the NCLB act, must inform parents that their child has the option to recieve free tutoring or to transfer to another school altogether.
While this sounds like a wonderful idea, letting parents know their rights in regards to their children's education, but sadly, fails to live up to the good intentions such things have (a common trait of NCLB). The biggest problem is that schools recieve funding based upon enrollment. Thus, if students transfer out, enrollment goes down and thus, funding gets cut as well. Schools that would fall under this provision (ie, the failing ones) will already be the ones that do not see enough funding.
Thus, underfunded schools are being threatened with either having funding cut further for trying to keep students by not informing parents of their right, or having their funding cut for not maintaining students. Of course, there's always a third option: Schools can always refuse to participate in the NCLB program and have all of their funding cut.
