Abstract     
"This paper reports initial findings from a study of middle grades educational reforms in Philadelphia. We use multilevel change models to analyze the impact on student mathematics achievement of privatization through the use of educational management organizations (EMOs), taking account of the structural reforms (creation of new K-8 schools to replace selected middle schools) occurring simultaneously within the district. Overall, the longitudinal mathematics achievement gains for students in EMO-managed schools were not larger than those for students in schools managed by the district. While students in long-established K-8 schools generally outgained students in middle schools, newly-established K-8s did not consistently outperform middle schools. There are hopeful signs, however, that broader systemic reforms – such as district-wide increases in the quality and coherence of curriculum and professional development -- are bearing fruit: The 2004 and 2005 cohorts of eighth-graders showed math achievement gains across the middle grades that were much larger than those shown by the 2003 cohort. This finding was broad based, occurring in middle schools and K-8 schools, in privately-managed and district-managed schools."
