RIDE's AF data makes no sense and is bullshit

I revised my earlier analysis of RIDE and Brown's Achievement First fiscal impact memo as a post for RI Future:

Even if one accepts all of RIDE and RIIPL’s method and rationale for its fiscal analysis, the bottom line is that that all their calculations are derived from a single, early, clearly idiosyncratic study that overstates the positive achievement effects of AF compared to any other study I have subsequently found.
