Great news about a partnership between KIPP and Penn (Mike Feinberg’s alma mater):

After a $2.5 million donation and partnership with Penn, knowledge is even more powerful for Knowledge is Power Program graduates starting next fall.

Yesterday, the Penn celebrated its partnership with KIPP, a public charter schools system, at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies near 34th and Walnut streets.

The event centered around honoring philanthropists Bruce and Martha Karsh, who are donating 2.5 million dollars to help send 12 to 15 KIPP students per year to study at Penn.
