KIPP Co-Founder Out


Mike Feinberg - who co-founded KIPP in the Houston School System - has been terminated amidst sexual misconduct allegations.  

A woman came forward last spring accusing Feinberg of sexually abusing her when she was a student in the late '90s.  

The organization conducted several internal investigations... and while neither proved to be conclusive... they said in a statement there was credible evidence that Feinberg engaged in "conduct that is incompatible with the mission and values of KIPP."

Feinberg denied the allegations, issuing the following statement through his attorney:

"I am disappointed by the allegations described today and by the actions taken against me by the KIPP Board. I do not condone, nor have I ever condoned, or engaged in, misconduct of this kind. These allegations were thoroughly investigated by non-biased third parties who found no wrongdoing, and the action of the KIPP Board is very disheartening. My focus has always been to further the critical mission of KIPP, assist other schools in getting better, help all families succeed in life, and to support the advancements of our community. I remain committed to everyone we serve, and will continue to serve."
