KIPP has a longstanding commitment to performance transparency. That commitment means we rigorously examine our performance data to understand our impact and successes, as well as our areas for growth. It allows us to honor our commitment to continuous learning and improvement, in order to better serve our students.
In 2008, Mathematica Policy Research began a multi-year longitudinal study of KIPP middle schools. Mathematica has released two reports to date, in 2010 and 2013, along with two installments of a working paper. The newest Mathematica report on KIPP, released in February 2013, is the most comprehensive look at KIPP schools to date.
By engaging in rigorous research and evaluation, we hope to promote continuous improvement within our network and serve as leaders in demonstrating what’s possible in public education for children from underserved communities. The final Mathematica report on KIPP will be released in 2015.
