EVA MOSKOWITZ’S STATEMENT ON GOVERNOR HOCHUL’S PROPOSAL TO PROVIDE MORE CHARTERS TO NYC  

New York, NY, February 1, 2023 — Statement from Success Academy Founder & CEO Eva Moskowitz in response to Governor Kathy Hochul’s proposal to provide for the opening of almost new 100 public charter schools in New York City, by freeing up upstate charters to be used anywhere in the state:

“Thank you Governor Hochul for giving  families what they want: more high quality educational choices. Now Albany needs to get behind this common sense solution and ensure it becomes law — that kids win over politics.”

About Success Academy 

Since its founding in 2006, Success Academy has created the highest-performing public school district in New York state, and a national model of access to excellence for children across all demographics. We currently enroll over 20,000 children in our 47 elementary, middle, and high schools. The majority of Success Academy scholars are children of color from low-income households in disadvantaged neighborhoods, admitted through a random public lottery. Our distinctive K-12 approach, designed as a holistic thirteen-year educational trajectory, leads to student outcomes that outpace even those in affluent suburban schools. To date, 100% of SA’s graduates have been accepted to college, many to highly selective institutions. Most are the first in their families to have the opportunity for higher education. We regularly share our groundbreaking curriculum and methods with educators and school leaders across the country. By scaling excellence and reigniting the civic mission of education, Success Academy is leading a movement to reinvent public education. All children can thrive and achieve in school, in college, and in life — Success Academy students and teachers prove it every day.
