Does your county have a policy regarding this? What are your personal feelings about this? While I do realize that most teachers need to have a second job to make ends meet, I do think it is a huge conflict of interest. Would you me more inclined to inflate a grade if parents are paying you $25+ an hour to tutor? What about the kids who can't afford it? At my last school we had tutoring for every child who wanted it from 3:30-4:15 two days a week. It was free, and we were required to stay even if no one showed up. At my new school (which is in an affluent area) many teachers at the school tutor on school grounds for compensation. It is against board policy, but the principal allows it because no one has ever made a stink about it.
