D.C.’s two biggest charter networks are growing. But how big is too big?

By Perry Stein, Washington Post

Last year, three charter schools in the District stood on the brink of closing. They needed help. Fast. Two turned to the Friendship Public Charter network. The third received a lifeline from the KIPP DC charter network.

And now, Friendship may rescue yet another struggling charter campus. D.C. education officials are considering a proposal for Friendship to take over Achievement Prep-Wahler Place Middle School in Southeast Washington.

KIPP DC and Friendship, the city’s two largest charter networks, have grown bigger in recent years as they take over floundering charter campuses, revamping the schools and adding the campuses to their already extensive and well-regarded portfolios.

The networks are poised to educate more than 11,500 public school students in the coming years — more than 11 percent of the city’s public school population.
