Students attending a cluster of Los Angeles schools overseen by the charter operator Green Dot, significantly increased their test scores and persistence in school, and took more challenging courses than comparable peers, a newly released study found.

 

We are honored to have  Marco Petruzzi, President and Chief Executive Officer of Green Dot Public Schools, as a TSC Signatory. The Green Dot model is based on setting high expectations for students, creating strong parent involvement, directing a significant amount of money to the classroom, keeping schools open on extended hours, and maintaining a safe learning environment, among other areas of emphasis.
