Re: “Charter schools' hidden agenda

The attrition study that Hewitt cites is bogus; it compares apples and oranges by comparing KIPP school attrition to public school DISTRICT attrition.

For the real facts on KIPP, look at this recent Mathematica study that looked at individual students (something Miron wasn’t able to do). KIPP attrition is no different from surrounding public schools, and black male attrition is actually lower at KIPP. http://www.mathematica-mpr.com/publication…
