A widely-publicized laudatory study on the KIPP charter schools was released yesterday.
I’m sure they do good work, but I hope it is not used to further bash regular public schools, nor used unrealistically to suggest they be expanded everywhere.

Reviews of the KIPP study seem to bear out that concern. Here are a few other questions about it, too.
