KIPP meme

Deja vu -- Article on KIPP Schools! Slate.com echoes much of what I, NYCEducator, Jim Horn, Transform Education and many others have said.

Push the meme - pass around the links, add your thoughts. We need to keep this "data" real. KIPP is effective with a small fraction of the student population IFF everything goes exactly to the master plan. Its methods will not work anywhere else, so ...

Please please please Mr. Administrator. Don't get all googly over these results and think you can replicate them. You can't.

I'm not against it for what it is and for whom it is designed to work. I'm against Principal PJs' idea of replicating it for everyone.

I've gotta get back to work.
