1) One of the key milestones in KIPP’s development was when Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes did a segment on KIPP in August 2000. Don and Doris Fisher, founders of the Gap, saw it and shortly thereafter offered to bankroll KIPP’s expansion — and the rest, as they say, is history.
KIPP was also profiled in a PBS special called Making Schools Work.
