Eva Moskowitz Statement on Chancellor Carranza’s Proposal for Success Academy Lafayette Middle School Community

New York, NY – Success Academy founder and CEO Eva Moskowitz released the below statement today regarding Chancellor Richard A. Carranza’s recent proposal for the Success Academy Lafayette Middle School community. At a Town Hall meeting on Wednesday night, Chancellor Carranza suggested that the 70 scholars slated to attend SA Lafayette -- a school that the de Blasio administration is now blocking from opening -- instead fill some of the “2,000 seats” available in public school buildings across Brooklyn. Eva Moskowitz, founder and CEO of Success Academy: “The response from Chancellor Carranza and the Department of Education is inadequate and insensitive: dispersing a school community that elected through our middle school placement process to attend a diverse middle school would effectively obliterate that community. In fact, the '2,000 seats' the DOE claims are available to the SA Lafayette community are seats intended for the 2,200 scholars who will be graduating from Success Academy’s 11 Brooklyn elementary schools over the next three years. School communities are built upon relationships and neighborhoods. Sending children to far-flung locations to essentially 'couch surf' for a year or two in whatever space is available is not educationally or morally acceptable.  We are profoundly disappointed in the mayor’s refusal to support this diverse school community and demand to know what plans will be made to find a permanent location for this middle school.”
