Profiles of For-Profit and Nonprofit Education Management Organizations. Fourteenth Edition--2011-2012

Annual "Profiles" reports are comprehensive digests of data on education management organizations. Analysis and interpretation of the data in this report are, for the most part, limited to describing general trends over time. The report is intended for a broad audience. Policymakers, educators, school district officials, and school board members may use this information to learn more about current or potential contractors. Investors, persons involved in the education industry, and employees of EMOs may find it useful in tracking changes, strategizing for growth, and planning investments. Journalists and researchers who study and seek to learn more about education management organizations may also find much here to interest them. Changes in the 14th Edition of the EMO Profiles include a closer integration of two separate data sets that track the nonprofit and for-profit EMOs, along with increased reliance on key informants and media sources to identify new EMOs and changes in schools operated by EMOs. The 2011-2012 school year marked another year of growth in both the for-profit and nonprofit education management sectors. In the previous three years we saw some signs of slowing growth in the for-profit sector, but the changes between 2010-2011 and 2011-12, demonstrate that there is still room for growth. The nonprofit management sector's growth has been steadily growing faster than their for-profit counterparts, both in terms of new nonprofit EMOs and new managed schools. Student enrollments in all managed schools continue to grow at a rapid pace. Appended are: (1) Reader's Guide; (2) For-Profit EMO Response Table; (3) Nonprofit EMO Response Table; (4) No Longer Profiled Companies; and (5) Methods for Compiling School Profiles.
