tuitioning in
 n.— «Parents cite a variety of factors—from academic to social to geographic—as reasons they pay for their children to attend public schools outside their home districts. The practice, known as “tuitioning in,” meets the needs of students who do not mesh with their home districts for a variety of reasons, and parents who remain partial to public schools. At the same time, these students provide a financial boon to the districts, which spend minimal extra money to accommodate them and sometimes reap hundreds of thousands of dollars in annual income.» —“‘Tuitioning in’ can offer best fit” by Liz Sadler The Journal News (White Plains, New York) Sept. 23, 2007.
