The difference a management organization makes

Charter schools that are part of a management organization received, on average, 75 percent more in per-pupil philanthropic contributions last year than charter schools that stand alone, according to analysis of the financial documents each school submitted to the IRS.

Ken Hirsh, a GothamSchools funder, conducted the analysis with his research assistant Kim Gittleson. The pair also found that city charter schools saw a 9 percent drop in per-pupil philanthropic donations last year. 

Their complete analysis is posted in the community section.
