Eva Moskowitz, CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools, Supports the Nomination of Betsy DeVos to U.S. Secretary of Education
In advance of today’s confirmation hearing for the nomination of Betsy DeVos as U.S. Secretary of Education, Eva Moskowitz, CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools, released the following statement. Founded in 2006, Success Academy Charter Schools is the largest and highest-performing charter network in New York, serving 14,000 students across 41 schools.
“It does not take years of teaching in the classroom to understand that public education in this country is in deep crisis. Globally, 35 other countries outrank the U.S. in student math performance, and 20 beat us in reading. I believe Betsy DeVos has the talent, commitment, and leadership capacity to revitalize our public schools and deliver the promise of opportunity that excellent education provides, and I support her nomination as U.S. Secretary of Education.”
