Urban School Reform: Achievement and School Climate Outcomes for the Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) - This study examines first-year outcomes from the implementation of the KIPP at the KIPP-DIAMOND Academy (KIPP:DA) in inner-city Memphis, Tennessee. Forty-nine KIPP:DA students were matched to a demographically similar counterpart who attended the same grade in one of the five schools serving the same geographic area as KIPP:DA. The study finds statistically significant and educationally meaningful advantages for KIPP:DA students on four out of six standardized tests. Also discussed are program design and student, teacher and parent perceptions. (Steven M. Ross, Aaron J.
