The Road Forward for New York City's Public Schools. Luncheon Series
Moskowitz, Eva
Center for Educational Innovation - Public Education Association
In the seven years that Eva Moskowitz has been in the public eye as City Council member and now head of a charter school, she has proven her unwavering commitment to public education. During her tenure as Chair of the Council's Education Committee, she held 125 oversight hearings on everything from procurement practices to work rules in the teachers' contract. In the process, Eva has made some powerful enemies. But that is what a true advocate for children must bear. CEI-PEA was honored to host Eva as speaker at our luncheon series on January 18, 2006. Eva spoke about her experiences on the City Council and the lessons she learned from those 125 oversight hearings as well as more than 300 school visits and countless PTA meetings. She painted a picture of the key issues that must be addressed for the New York City public school system to advance, and she outlined how she intends to improve public education at her new charter school, Harlem Success Academy. This paper presents an edited version of the transcript.
