Offshoring Your Tutors

from the the-world-is-flat? dept

Rajesh Barnwal writes "After the high-tech industry, outsourcing of educational services is now a growing business with Indian teachers tutoring American school children at a far less cost than their US counterparts. US President George W Bush's 'No Child Left Behind Act,' which mandates testing and says students in low-scoring schools are entitled to extra help, provides federal funds for such tutoring -- estimated to be a $2 billion industry. Tutors in Indian cities like New Delhi or Bangalore are already helping kids in Colorado and California over the Internet."
