Success Academy majorly operates in New York City and has its headquarters in Lower Manhattan. The founder of Success Academy who is also the CEO, Eva Moskowitz had a clear vision and objective of creating schools that will be performing exemplary. At the same time, she had a broad picture of improving American education and making it worthwhile. However, Success Academy is only limited to New York at the moment. However, there has been a launch of a new online platform which has the objective of growing the success academy footprints beyond.

 

The online platform which is now popularly called the “Success Academy Education Institute,” which was unveiled by the CEO, Eva Moskowitz together with other leaders from their headquarters in Lower Manhattan. The portal is completely free, and it offers access to the tutorials and learning strategies used at Success Academy which has 41 schools across New York. This is a move to be part of the change in America’s education as there are children across the nation who have no access to quality and effective education. Therefore, the portal will be a great help to them since Success Academy has a good track record when it comes to offering good and quality education.

 

Success Academy is also aimed at improving the academic status of low-income students. It is for this reason that the school was awarded the 250,000 Dollars Broad Prize. It is also important to note that 76 percent of the children in Success Academy are from a poor background whereas the majority of the students about 93 percent are of either African-American or Hispanic descent.

 

The online platform includes different useful resources like “how to videos, book recommendations, and so much more.

This ensures quality education delivery. This network of school has rapidly grown over a decade from one school to over 40 schools. It also receives many applications yearly that may be up to 17,000 applications for the available 3,017 available vacancies. The school was founded in the year 2006. Success Academy is a charter school. Though it’s publicly funded, the charter is privately managed. It is, therefore, the largest charter school in New York.

Rick Shinto and the Crucial Role He Plays With InnovaCare

The heart of any medical facility is going to be their CEO. Rick Shinto realizes this well, and he knew when he took the reins of InnovaCare Health Network. In order to guide the endeavor into the 21st Century, he knew a number of important personal attributes needed to be instilled:

Teamwork

Anyone working with a health insurance firm will quickly realize that it can be a tricky endeavor. It will require a cool head and individuals that realize it is all about giving one hundred percent day in and day out.

Setting goals

Betsy DeVos and the Fight for School Choice

The role of the government in regards to providing quality education to the citizens of the United States has always been a nebulous topic, at best. We’ve often heard horror stories of government funded schools struggling to make ends meet, forcing teachers to pony up and pay for their own supplies. That is why we were so interested when Betsy DeVos was confirmed as the U.S. Secretary of Education by the Trump Administration. DeVos is a devout private school and voucher program advocate and she is promising to bring in a realm of change to the role of government in schools. DeVos broke down what her future goals are and how she has been influenced by her past in order to give an enlightening interview.

As we alluded to above, Betsy DeVos is a devout believer in the private choice programs that are going into effect in so many different states around the country. DeVos herself has been stumping for more private choice schooling options ever since Milton Friedman’s book, ‘The Role of Government in Education’, began to gain some serious traction. DeVos points out that there are 17 states participating in private choice school programs that include 33 schools and a quarter of a million students. Private choice schooling options are no longer considered a fringe choice in education and you can thank the DeVos family for this, at least in part.

Betsy DeVos knows that she can’t peg her affinity to school choice down to a single moment, but she does recall a visit to the Potter’s House Christian School so many years ago. DeVos said that during the meeting at the school, which was made with her husband Dick DeVos, she noticed that the school was absolutely electric with potential and the pursuit of knowledge. DeVos says, “We met parents who were doing everything in their power to have their kids in an environment that was safe, where they were learning, and where the atmosphere was just electric with curiosity.” Visit betsydevos.com to know more about Betsy.

DeVos has been more than just an admiring bystander during this entire process. During the early 1990s Betsy served on the boards of two important charities that were focused on public school choice: Children First America as well as the American Education Reform Council. Her work here was focused on making a political movement that would garner school choice some momentum in order to really make a difference. Of course, DeVos has done far more than just mingle on charity boards. She was also the chair at the Michigan Republican party where she worked hard to try to get state legislation passed to enforce a voucher system for public school options. It is easy to see that this topic means a great deal to DeVos and millions of other Americans.
