Profiles of For-Profit Education Management Companies, 2001-2002 - The number of for-profit companies managing public schools in the United States increased 70 percent in the past year, according to data compiled by the Education Policy Studies Laboratory at Arizona State University. This fourth directory of for-profit education management companies identifies 36 companies managing 368 schools in 24 states and the District of Columbia.
