Eva Moskowitz Challenges Traditional Education With Success Academy

Eva Moskowitz is a person that has been passionate about the privatization of schools. She has put forth a lot of effort to create better charter schools by creating the Success Academy. She originally started the Harlem Success Academy, and she has continued to work and make improvements in Harlem school systems. Armed with a PhD in history, Eva Moskowitz has been the champion of better school leadership in the New York City area.


Eva Moskowitz has realized that there is a level of inadequacy in the education system. She has a passion for charter schools because she knows that it is just not fair for people that live in certain neighborhoods to still not have access to better education. She knows that with the issue of zoning children that really want to learn that they can still be in a position where they do not have the ability to get a better education. What she wanted to do with the Success Academy is create a place where kids in Harlem could still receive a quality education regardless of whether they were in a lavish neighborhood or not.


What Eva really wanted to do is change the course of education in America. Eva Moskowitz believes that students in other countries that are just in the way of performing modestly in the school system are still doing better than what is considered high performance for students in America. She believes that there is a crisis on an international level, and she believes that people that are in poverty are getting the worst possible education. She is a graduate of Stuyvesant High School, and Eva Moskowitz has said that she has not really received a high school education of any real value. She wanted to give students a chance to have access to more of a diverse learning environment. She believes that this cannot be something that is possible in most public schools because the education system, as far as she’s concerned, is broken. She wanted to create a new type of education system with her Success Academy school.
