Unfortunately it’s not every week of the school year.
On Reason.com, you can get a thumbnail introduction to one remarkable pioneer in the school choice movement: Eva Moskowitz. “Her ‘Success Academy’ now runs 46 charter schools that teach more than 15,000 students,” John Stossel and Maxim Lott write. “As a charter, she has more freedom to innovate.”
“Her school gets amazing results: 95% of kids pass the state math test, and 84% pass English. At all NYC government schools only 38% and 41% pass.” And here’s another reason to like her–Mayor DeBlasio doesn’t: “it’s time for Eva Moskowitz to stop having the run of the place!,” says hizzoner.
