The Project's National Literacy Program

The National Education Project, Inc. proposes to combat the nation's growing illiteracy problem by providing reliable and effective tutors on a massive scale to elementary school children who must have tutoring in the old, classical sense of the term if they are to master the basic literacy skills that are required for employment in a technological economy.

The tutoring is done by undergraduates as part of a three-credit college course. For a complete operational description of how the Project's National Literacy Program actually works, please Click Here.




Immediate Goal of this Project:

The National Education Project, Inc. is actively seeking one medium-size city in America willing to establish 20 tutoring programs based on the model of this Project (cities such as, Baltimore, Seattle, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, New Orleans, or Washington, D.C.).

Twenty programs will have the effect of providing 145,000 hours of tutoring to the children in the elementary schools of that city in a five-year period.

Tutoring on such a massive scale will raise reading and math scores across the entire city, and create in this city, and on the reading and math test scores alone, the finest elementary school system in the nation.




National Goal of this Project:

We shall establish programs on a city-wide basis in city after city all across the country, providing tutors to children on a massive scale, and transforming entire cities as we go.

The ultimate goal of the National Education Project is simply stated: To create a rebirth of learning across this country that will rival the Golden Age of Pericles.





Effectiveness of the Tutors from this Project:

The National Education Project is an established, proven program, and all tutors work under the direct supervision of elementary school classroom teachers.

Are the tutors from this Project effective? Each classroom teacher provides written evaluations of the effectiveness of the tutors at the end of each semester, and here, for example, is what one 2nd grade public school classroom teacher in Chicago had to say after just one semester of tutoring:

"Bill [the tutor] was a very positive force in both Gregory's and Bernard's school year. He motivated the boys with stories, guided activities, and games. The boys felt very special because they had Bill as their tutor.

"Gregory gained 1 year and 8 months in reading. Bernard gained 1 year and 1 month in math."

To see additional evaluations regarding the effectiveness of the tutors from this Project, please click Results of the Tutoring for actual evaluations written by classroom teachers in Chicago, Boston, and New York City.

Or click Press Clips for assessments of this Project by newspaper reporters and editors across the country.




The Children, the Tutors, and The Constitution of the United States:

People who can't read, can't read the Constitution, and the tutors in this Project fulfill an essential function of American citizenship by teaching children to read.

Moreover, at the end of each semester, the undergraduates in this Project autograph and give to the children they have tutored a pocket-size copy of The United States Constitution.




Funding & Costs of the National Literacy Program:

The National Education Project, Inc. is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation, which is supported by donations from private individuals, as well as by contributions from corporations, foundations, and law firms. Please see Previous Donors.

The National Education Project is actively seeking one medium-size city in America willing to establish 20 tutoring programs, which, in turn, will provide 145,000 hours of tutoring to the children in the elementary schools of that city in a five-year period and raise reading and math scores across the entire city.

Twenty tutoring programs cost $1,500,000, and will provide 145,000 hours of tutoring to the children in the elementary schools of one city over five years. These funds are used for two purposes:

  1. To provide 20 grants to colleges and universities in one city in the amount of $50,000 per grant (that is, 20 grants x $50,000 per grant = $1,000,000); and

  2. To underwrite the management and administrative costs of operating 20 tutoring programs in one city during the five-year grant period.

As a result, this Project can produce one hour of tutoring for less than $11.00, including overhead; that is, $1,500,000 divided by 145,000 hours of tutoring produced in one city in a five-year period.
