As America looks to remain competitive in an ever-changing world, the future of the U.S. education system is a critical component to the national conversation. As founder and CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools, Eva Moskowitz established an unprecedented track record for guiding New York City’s most disadvantaged children to high academic performance. In a candid talk, Moskowitz reflects on the battles she has waged and the key partnerships she established with allies such as Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Governor Andrew Cuomo to reimagine the approach to educating New York’s burgeoning minds.
Eva Moskowitz is a former New York City councilmember and the author of The Education of Eva Moskowitz: A Memoir. Under her leadership, Success Academy has established almost four dozen charter schools in four of the city’s five boroughs. Louise Mirrer (moderator) has served as President and CEO of the New-York Historical Society since 2004. Prior to joining New-York Historical, Dr. Mirrer was CUNY Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
