Paul Tough's endorsement of Tutor/Mentor Programs

I forgot to mention in the previous post, that Paul Tough, in an interview on Alexander Russo's blog, "This Week in Education," mentions tutor/mentor programs as an important of closing the education gap. He cites "broader, non-instructional approaches," which could most definitely include tutoring and mentoring in helping children achieve. This interview is also very interesting to read in trying to understand what Tough was trying to get at in writing his article "What it Takes to Make a Student."
