Eva Moskowitz

Eva Moskowitz founded Success Academy Charter Schools in 2006 to tackle the monumental crisis in public education in the most prominent city in the United States. Success Academy has become one of the fastest-growing, highest-performing public charter school networks in the country, with more than 50 schools enrolling over 20,000 students.  

As a national leader, Eva speaks to diverse groups across the country and has shared her expertise with thousands of educators and visitors from around the world. She has testified before Congress about education and economics, and has worked with political leaders of both parties — from presidents and governors to mayors and state legislators — to advocate for children’s educational futures. Her memoir, The Education of Eva Moskowitz, details Eva’s fight for education reform and the personal journey that brought her to where she is today.

“Parents are their children’s first teachers and will always be their most important teachers. The more we empower parents, inform them, and equip them with the skills they need to help children learn, the better off our entire society will be. A+ Parenting is an invaluable resource for any person who wants to improve their parenting skills.”
Arne Duncan, former U.S. Secretary of Education
“Want to make your kids smarter? More engaged? Readier for life? The first thing to realize is that kids are learning all the time—not just when they’re in school. Yes, that’s what this super educator says! Her peppy, empowering book reminds us parents that jokes, stories, trips, songs, movies, and everyday chats are ALL educational experiences. You don’t have to be an Einstein, you just have to be ready to think, talk, and enjoy the world with your family.”
Lenore Skenazy, President of Let Grow, author of Free-Range Kids
"Eva Moskowitz, in her extraordinarily informative and inspiring book on parenting, provides us with a much-needed manual on how to raise exceptionally competent, culturally literate, highly successful, and genuinely happy children. It's a perfect gift for all new parents.”
Sheridan Blau, Professor of Practice in the Teaching of English, Columbia University
“In my experience, the students who get the most out of college aren’t merely diligent; they have a sincere enthusiasm for thoughtful inquiry. There is no more important gift that a parent can give their child than to nurture their love of learning from the youngest age possible. This book is an invaluable resource for any parent who wants to give that gift.”
Lawrence Summers, former President, Harvard University
