Two new reports out of the Education Policy Research Unit at Arizona State University profile the Nonprofit and the For-profit Education Management Sector. The report offers detailed information about almost every management company from Green Dot to K12 Inc.

The reports defines an education management organization, or EMO, as an organization or firm that manages schools receiving public funds, including district and charter public schools. A contract details the terms under which executive authority to run one or more schools is given to an EMO in return for a commitment to produce measurable outcomes within a given time frame.
