Research from Mathematica -- an organization known to turn out reliable numbers -- contradicts a Western Michigan University study released last month which found the charter schools were losing black males at a high rate.

Our data is showing that KIPP loses black males overall at a lower rate than the local district schools," said Christina Clark Tuttle, a senior researcher for Mathematica.
