The number of KIPP graduates attending high-profile colleges will be growing, as KIPP has now signed agreements with 39 colleges to create KIPP-to-college programs that include recruiting pipelines and campus support systems for low-income students who graduate from the charter schools. In today’s Washington Post, Nick Anderson looks at how the pipelines are working for some students.
Robert Pondiscio took an in-depth look at the programs and some of the challenges they face in “No Excuses Kids Go to College: Will High-Flying Charters See Their Low-Income Students Graduate,” which appeared in the Spring 2013 issue of Ed Next.
