"Nice job on this report. You really have gotten to a level of specificity in here that we haven't seen elsewhere. And interesting findings – especially the inferences you draw from linking inputs to outputs. (For example, that the four highest spenders on HR are among the "success cohort" in terms of student outcomes. That's as interesting to me as the other finding about SMOs that spent higher percentages on administration, generally, producing good outcomes.)"Andy Calkins, Senior Vice President, Mass Insight Education & Research Institute, Boston
"Renaissance School Services has produced a highly valuable analysis of the economics of both for-profit and non-profit school management organizations."Thomas Toch, co-director, Education Sector, Washington
"The conclusions were interesting and provocative. The connection between cost per pupil and achievement was extremely timely and we are in the middle of a review of that. We want to move our students faster. This will help. Also useful are the implications around philanthropy and growth and performance...it's been really helpful to have this as part of our strategic planning, especially the link between investment and student outcomes."Lucretia Murphy, Executive Director, See Forever Foundation and Maya Angelou Public Charter Schools, Washington
"We got a number of 'aha's' from the report. We broke it down to our needs: revenue, governance, fees, academics. These 'aha's' opened our minds and eyes to things we might take a second look at, including looking at size and how to create sub-networks, and the economy of scale/quality of service issue. This economy of scale issue is critical to us, and this report is causing us to think about our organization and our strategies in new ways."Al Andino, VP for Strategic Partnerships, Institute for Student Achievement, New York
