The Foundation for Excellence in Education (ExcelinEd) today announced that Eva Moskowitz, the founder and CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools, will be honored at the 2018 National Summit on Education Reform (#EIE18) on Friday, December 7, in Washington, D.C. ExcelinEd’s flagship annual event brings together educators from across the country and around the globe to strategize on improving education for all children.
During a special closing keynote, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, founder and chairman of ExcelinEd, will present Moskowitz with the Excellence in Education Award for her work on behalf of New York City’s most disadvantaged students.
“This award recognizes the tremendous service and accomplishments of education innovator Eva Moskowitz, one of America’s most passionate advocates for children. For more than a decade, the Success Academy Charter Schools she founded have served students too often overlooked in traditional classrooms, demonstrating to the world that every student receiving a quality education has the capacity to learn and succeed,” said Governor Bush. “Eva’s longstanding commitment to excellence has changed the future for thousands of students in New York City, and ExcelinEd is honored to recognize her and welcome her as a speaker at the 2018 National Summit on Education Reform.”
In 2006, Moskowitz created Success Academy Charter Schools—the largest and best-performing public charter school network in New York City—to address an education system that was both dysfunctional and inequitable. Known as the “charter czarina,” Moskowitz has taken on the powerful and entrenched education special interests to guide thousands of disadvantaged students to academic success.
