Eva Moskowitz Calls For The Creation Of Public Charter Schools

Eva Moskowitz is a leading advocate for public charter schools in New York City and the entire country. The founder of Success Academy Charter Schools is confident that the introduction of more charter schools would be of great help to American students whose needs are not catered for by the traditional education system in the United States.

Although Eva Moskowitz grew up knowing that public schools were not tailored to every student’s needs, she became aware of the extent of the problem during her tenure as the chair of the City Council Education Committee in New York City. After more than 100 hearings, her position on advocating for charter schools was firmly rooted. This way, she escalated her campaigns on the same. Eva Moskowitz decided to found Success Academy Charter Schools to help save the city’s children.

According to a series on the Daily News, it has been proven that the problems faced by the City’s children decades ago have not gone away. Over 143,000 kids are being trapped in failing schools. The school system has been eroded to the extent that they cannot be saved using standard solutions. The only way to save trapped children is through the introduction of high-quality public charter schools.

Public charter schools will help to introduce a robust curriculum and capable teachers who can guide the students to achieve their academic success. Such schools will enable students to understand that every adult around them has high expectations on them. This way, students will be encouraged to work harder and realize their full potentials.

Eva Moskowitz is creating a system that can be used to run public charter schools. Success Academy schools focus on teaching all subjects at the very high levels. Their curriculum includes chess, art, and sports. Before joining the schools, teachers are required to undergo a rigorous training process. The tutor must work in close collaboration with their colleges, and attend regular professional development sessions.

Betsy DeVos as The Next Secretary of Education

Betsy DeVos is going to be the Secretary of Education in the Trump government. This will herald a new era in the American education system. It is not very clear what all changes will be coming in. But Betsy DeVos has always been concerned about the declining standards in education. She is already quite vocal about her views on the privatization of school education. All this will lead to developing new technologies over her tenure for the next four years.

It is already evident to all that higher education is becoming lesser accessible with each passing year. One of the reasons is its escalating costs. Besides, the tuition fee is rising at about 7-8 percent annually.

There had been a gathering at the White House to discuss this issue. It had innovative leaders as well as top organizations in education. They met to discuss solutions about these high costs in the American education system. Each of these attendees had been hand-picked by education advisors of Obama as well as from the Department of Education.

It became clear that the American education system is dependent on education technology companies as well as nonprofits that can create scalable and sustainable solutions. Betsy DeVos is aligned to the same philosophies. She suggests opening the education industry to all those entrepreneurs who wish to innovate through technological breakthroughs. She intends to guarantee education for all. This would require a strategic balance between education technology companies and a public education system that is highly stable.

In addition to her vision with regard to higher education, Betsy DeVos is a major proponent of school choice as well as vouchers. This means offering financial assistance to parents whose children are attending private or charter schools and not the public ones.

The school voucher systems are intended for providing vouchers specifically to the disadvantaged students. Betsy DeVos feels that public education should receive lesser federal support. Also, the onus will be more on education technology startups as well as nonprofits for defending besides improving this state of education.

Betsy DeVos and her husband have been fighting for this cause for over 20 years. They have themselves attended private schools, and so have their children. In the same way, Betsy DeVos would like each family to have this kind of “educational choice.”

Betsy DeVos has expressed support for vouchers, private schooling, charter schools, besides homeschooling. Another area is “digital learning.” All these are the viable options under the choice for education.

Do note that the efforts of Betsy DeVos are motivated by her religious beliefs too. She wants to change the way we approach the system of education in America. Her efforts are highly organized as well as strategic.
