PATHS to Tutor Act

There are 600,000 individuals enrolled in teacher-preparation programs who can help provide critical academic and social-emotional support to students now, while gaining experience to help prepare them to lead classrooms in the future. These aspiring teachers can augment in-person, virtual, and hybrid learning by providing essential academic support through high-impact tutoring – helping both to support learning acceleration and strengthen pipelines into teaching.

The Partnering Aspiring Teachers with High-Need Schools (PATHS) to Tutor Act would provide meaningful educational opportunities to students and support workforce development by:

  • Ensuring students in high-need communities receive targeted academic support through intensive, structured tutoring opportunities
  • Strengthening the pipeline of future teachers by placing teacher-candidates into tutoring roles
  • Reducing the economic burden on aspiring teachers by allowing successful completion of a tutoring placement to qualify for national service educational awards granted by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS)
