No Decent Paying Job Left Behind

A hundred bucks an hour for tutoring? Not anymore. You can get tutors for far less, even as little as $2.50 an hour.

It's certainly tempting to parents. In fact with No Child Left Behind mandating tutoring, companies are already experimenting with using offshore tutors. Certainly, American teachers can't compete with these rates.

Is this a good thing, or is it yet another job lost for working Americans? Will GW and company figure out a way to outsource teachers altogether?

You can't deny that doing so would go a long way toward reducing Steve Forbes' tax bill, the number one priority of our nation.

(Disclaimer: I don't tutor for pay, ever.)
