"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
"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
"This was a really tricky task and I applaud the work that was done. The report has opened up our thinking by asking 'Where do other organizations place some of these responsibilities? What would it look like if we moved certain things from one place to another? I was skeptical that you could do a valid comparison, and I am very impressed with fact that you did. In sum, the report is pretty expansive and comprehensive."Kay McElrath, Chief Financial Officer, High Tech High, San Diego
"The report was very well structured and captured in detail the operations of our organization and the key drivers of cost. It would become an even more powerful benchmarking tool if more organizations joined the study so we could have a more representative sample of organizations to compare ourselves from each State."Marco Petruzzi, President and Chief Operating Officer, Green Dot Public Schools, Los Angeles
