Crains New York / By Steven Galbraith

Based on the Success chairman of the Network Board, Steven Galbraith, knows there’s a major cognitive dissonance among both our political detractors and supporters. More than 94% of Success Academy scholars are of color. They come from all five boroughs. The median annual income of our families is under $45,000. Of our seven-person leadership team, six—including CEO Eva Moskowitz—are women, and 46% of our teachers are minorities, compared with less than 20% nationally. Collectively, the Success community could hardly be described as the prototypical beneficiary of radical right-wing politics.
