KIPP Leadership

Per the Washington Post, KIPP founders Levin and Feinberg are transitioning to focus on big picture issues in education.  Levin will spend some time working with the Relay School of Education, a partnership created by KIPP, Achievement First, and Uncommon Schools.  The creation of an education school focused on urban education and populated by staff members from some of the city's successful charter schools will be an interesting development.  I'm generally skeptical about most education programs, but I'll try to keep tabs on the Relay School to see if it benefits teachers and students.  The article outlines KIPP's aggressive expansion plans and fundraising targets, which have been revised since the financial crisis.
