Stop Blaming Charters

City Journal / By Marcus A. Winters
Originally published: 12.11.2017

For a generation now, charter school opponents have warned that these alternative public schools will spell doom for the American ideal of public education. It’s about time that they offer something more than anecdotes and theory to support their claims. More than two decades into the charter school experience, it’s clear that charters are not proving harmful to traditional public schools—and, if anything, are helping them do better.

Charters Didn’t Cause Segregation. They’re a Solution for Its Victims.

New York Magazine / By Jonathan Chait
Originally published: 12.8.2017

What urban charters in general, and Success Academy in particular, have figured out is that the achievement gap is not, as some conservatives have speculated, genetic. Nor is it some ethereal “culture” that defies institutional design. It is the product of a confluence of policy and environmental factors that can be identified and remedied. The achievement gap results from a gap in health, nutrition, parental involvement, community expectations, an orderly school environment, exposure to vocabulary, and access to books, among other things. Urban charter schools have systematically identified the missing sources of support and supplied them.

Space for Public Charter Schools Would Bring Opportunity to the Bronx

City & State New York / By Marcos Crespo

As an elected representative who believes that a public official’s first duty is to their constituents, as a Bronxite who wishes for a solution and as a father committed to providing my daughters with the best education, I urge our city leaders to do the right thing by providing public charter school students across New York City with the space they need to learn – not just for one year, but for many years to come.

Lack of Space Leaves Charter School 4th-Graders in State of Limbo

New York Post / By Alex Taylor and Yoav Gonen
Originally published: 12.7.2017

For parents and kids at Success Academy Cobble Hill, their three-year battle with the Department of Education for more classroom space isn’t a political exercise — it’s a daily anxiety. That’s because the high-performing charter school has never been provided with the promised space for students in grades five to eight within the district.

The Charter-School Crusader

The Atlantic / By Elizabeth Green
Originally published: 12.6.2017

One school became 46. One hundred sixty-five students became 15.500. A tiny outpost in Harlem spawned brethren all across Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens; Harlem Success Academy is now part of the Success Academy Charter Schools network, of which Moskowitz—the author of a lively new memoirThe Education of Eva Moskowitz—is CEO. From that position, she has become one of the country’s most influential crusaders at a turning point for charter schooling.

The Lies Behind the City’s Denial of Space That Charters Need

New York Post / By Post Editorial Board
Originally published: 12.4.2017

The city Department of Education claims it can’t give Success Academy the middle-school space it needs because it’s just too hard to say if half-empty public schools will stay that way. That’s nonsense. Most of the buildings where Success wants to open new schools, in areas near its scholars’ primary schools, have had plenty of room for years, as the city’s own data show.
