Eva Moskowitz is a well-known educationist and even her opinion about elementary schools versus the charter school system. She advocated for a discriminatory system that despises or fails to tackle the needs of the weaker student and the performance-based curriculum. Eva Moskowitz is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Success Academy charter schools in New York.
The school uses a strategic approach to teaching and student’s evaluation. As Judge Aaron of the Yankee Stadium would say, the students are hitting high, far and with command. The Success Academy brought together poor performing student, and through her model, about 90% of them performed above average on a math test in the year gone. The English Language Arts (ELA) has improved the language either in its written or spoken form. In fact, statistics indicated 75% of the unprivileged kids matched those from favorable environments.
Other than the unique design in the Success Academy, it also has an online platform. It is a freely accessible site that contains the school curriculum dubbed as the “Foundation of Success Academy’s school Design”. Complementarily, it contains the teacher’s guide, reading for children and a list of books recommended for the curriculum. This has helped bridge the illiteracy gap among children from a low-income background.
