KIPP Foundation Finds the Story behind the Numbers
The Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP) began on the belief that “promises to children are sacred.” How does KIPP know if they are keeping their promises? They use data, of course! In this video, meet KIPP CEO Richard Barth as he explains the “Six Essential Questions,” indicators that help KIPP schools know if their students and schools are on track for success in college and careers. Listen to three teachers describe using data to meet students where they are and set goals with their students pushing them to achieve. Meet Brandon, a KIPP student, as he shares how data shows him what his strengths are and where he can learn from his mistakes. Courtesy of the KIPP Foundation.
