Abstract

Although many consider KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) to be a prototype charter school operator that merits expansion and replication, few systematic and independent assessments of it are available. A large-scale study incorporating a randomized design has begun, but until that study is complete policymakers need to learn what they can from existing evidence. This brief reviews seven studies that attempt to answer questions concerning whether and to what degree KIPP schools raise student achievement.
