Mathematica built on its initial study of KIPP middle schools with this five-year project, designed to address the question of whether KIPP can maintain its effectiveness as the network grows. The study included an impact analysis, an implementation analysis, and a correlational analysis.
School Choice and Charters

The idea is that facilitating enrollment in private schools or public charter schools will improve academic achievement for students otherwise stuck in low-performing schools, and force these schools to improve. Mathematica has been at the forefront of research in this area and is now leading the first national evaluation of the effectiveness of online charter schools.
