Don’t miss Jay Mathew’s long and boffo feature look at KIPP schools in today’s Washington Post Style section. It has history, status quo, and great anecdotes. Too many must-read bits in here to pull them all out.
Mathews writes that there is no organized opposition to KIPP. Presumably that was written before the events of the last week. Broadsides like the NYT’s don’t differentiate high and low-performing charter schools but simply indict them all.
Also, in his online column, Mathews looks at math instruction.
