People are willing to pay to have their kids taught by tutors when it becomes clear their children's school are doing a poor job. For a good decade or two the market has grown as the schools have gotten worse, and so now we have a good choice.
Just not for the schools. It's a feudal thing; your kid belongs to the school that is paid to service the plot of land you live on.

It seems like there's a high demand for tutoring companies so there'll be lots of choices as to who to go to for tutoring these days. Back when I was in school, I could only access the tutoring resources they had at my high school. Now there are all these private enterprises that you can choose from.
