KIPP and colleges: The list

Here’s a postscript to my story on KIPP charter schools and colleges.

It’s a complete list of the 20 colleges and universities that have signed agreements with the Knowledge Is Power Program to recruit students from the national charter school network. Also included are totals of KIPP alumni currently enrolled in the colleges. The first agreement was signed by the University of Houston in October 2011, according to KIPP, followed by deals reached with Tulane University and Franklin & Marshall College.
