This study examines the role that intermediary organizations, the groups responsible for distributing grant funds and starting and advising new small schools, played in the Gates Foundation initiative. The study is part of a collaborative evaluation effort funded by the foundation and led by MDRC that included the Academy for Educational Development (AED) as well as Policy Studies Associates (PSA).
