I have downloaded the answers of 15 KIPP National case study of letters; A,B & C where are the questions
Case 15: Kipp National
A.) The original KIPP schools in Houston and New York were very successful. From 1995 to
1999, 90-100% of students in both schools had passed the state exams. Attendance was around
100% for each school and some students tested grade levels were above recent high school
graduates. The fact that there were hundreds of students on wait lists to try and enter each
school is a good indicator that people were aware of the academic success students were
achieving. In 1999 the graduating class in Houston alone had earned more than 1million in
academic scholarships to private, parochial, and boarding schools. The operational model that
set them apart from other standard schools was the turning over of complete authority to Mike
and David or the school to discipline the children with long hours of hard work and punishment
if necessary. Getting the children and parents on board by signing a commitment form that gave
almost complete authority to the school to do ?whatever was needed?. As well the seclusion and
one on one work with each student promoted focused study by eliminating distractions.
I think the KIPP schools could be replicated to some degree. As long as the culture of
hard work and dedication is present then the schools could succeed. I think a huge determinant
would be the need for the schools to have the power to discipline the kids and keep them for
long hours at a time in order to allow the students to develop the idealistic work ethic. As KIPP
expands Mike and David will become stretched and may not be able to attend to each school
and every student. This could be devastating to the operational model since the culture of hard
work ethic stems from the vision of Mike and David alone. If they are able to share their vision
with others who have tremendous work ethics as well then the model could be expanded to
other regions of poor minority school districts.
My advice to Mike and David as far as management would be to be sure and choose
their future teachers well because they will have to share the vision and work ethic in order to
make KIPP a success. I also think it may be important for Mike and David to trust the teachers
they hire and treat each teacher as a unique individual. You can?t micromanage certain people
because it may blow up in your face. Other people however may require constant contact and
assistance in order to be successful, just like the students in the demographic areas that KIPP
