WWC QRPSM0310 Quick Review of the Article "Impact of For-Profit and Nonprofit Management on Student Achievement: The Philadelphia Intervention, 2002-2008"
The study examined whether shifting public schools to private management improved the academic achievement of eighth graders.

The study analyzed data on eighth graders in 88 schools in the Philadelphia City School District from 199697 to 200506.

Academic achievement in reading and mathematics was measured using the schools' mean eighth-grade scale scores on the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment exam.

The study measured the effect of changing to private management by comparing annual test score gains for schools before and after being shifted to private management to the gains over the same period for schools that remained under district control.
