More than half of public schools—56%—are using high-dosage tutoring as a key piece of their strategy for students’ learning recovery, according to national data. High-dosage tutoring—either one-on-one or small group instruction that’s offered at least three times a week, has strong research backing. States, philanthropies, and the Biden administration are all backing tutoring initiatives. But staffing shortages, lackluster online options, and ensuring that tutoring reaches the students who need it most have been challenges for many school districts who want to deploy the strategy.
In this event, we will highlight and discuss the evidence base for tutoring, best practices for doing it effectively, and different ways to provide it at scale in school communities.
