KIPP Schools Slapped with "Needs Improvement" Status

Despite crafting a public relations campaign to suggest superior academics, the KIPP Delta Charter Schools have been declared a Needs Improvement School by the Arkansas Department of Education. 
From the school's own website as it appeared today, "KIPP Delta Public Schools were recently designated as Needs Improvement Schools by the Arkansas Department of Education."  This designation is a result of test scores not meeting the targets set by the Arkansas Department of Education.
This provides the community with another piece of evidence that quasi-private charter schools are not offering a superior experience and that communities should focus their energy and resources on maintaining a quality public school system as part of their efforts to insure positive movement toward economic and community development.
