The article presents a quasi-experimental evaluation of the Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) Academy Lynn of Lynn, Massachusetts and its efficacy in positively addressing racial achievement gaps and economic disparities. Introductory comments are given outlining the characteristics of the KIPP program, noting both the claims of its supporters and the concerns of its critics regarding the exclusively school-centered social advocacy program. Statistical analysis is then given for the school's performance, focusing on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) test.
