KIPPie Does Dallas

Gary Rubinstein's Blog

Dallas is the childhood home of Wendy Kopp.  And Wendy Kopp begat TFA, and TFA begat Dave Levin and Mike Feinberg, and Dave Levin and Mike Feinberg begat KIPP, and KIPP begat KIPP Destiny Elementary School in Dallas-Fort Worth.  So you’d figure that KIPP Destiny Elementary School had better be pretty good since it is like Wendy’s gift back to the city that nurtured her in her youth.

Texas is adopting a new A-F rating system for all the schools there.  Recently they did a ‘test run’ to show schools what their ratings would be under the new system.  Each school is rated from A-F on four different domains.  Out of 9,000 schools, about 75 of them got 4 Fs.  Then another 175 or so got 3 Fs and a D.

One of those 3 F’s and a D school was, of course, KIPP Destiny Elementary School in Dallas.
