New report on spending by charter management organizations

The National Education Policy Center released a provocative report today that looks at per pupil spending in charter schools run by charter management organizations compared to similar district schools. Some schools run by high-profile charter networks spend more per pupil than comparable district schools in New York and Texas, the report noted. On the other  hand, other CMO schools, particularly in Ohio, spend less.

One of the CMOs highlighted  in the report is preparing a response and we’ll publish that as soon as we receive it.

Edited to add:

We now have a response from KIPP, which I’ve attached.
