Eva Moskowitz the CEO and founder of the New York City charter school network, Success Academy, launched a new program this month. The program called Education Institute, or ‘Ed Institute’ for short, is being offered to educators all around the country completely free of charge.
What is Education Institute? It is a way for Success Academy to offer its curriculum, the methods it uses to teach and the educational resources to any educator in the country that wants them.
After all, with such exceptional academic results themselves over the last few years, Eva Moskowitz and Success Academy want to be sure other students have the opportunity to succeed as well.
Education Institute is not just a data base of dry and dull lesson material either. It also includes videos, comprehensive reading lists and lesson plans so educators in other school districts can emulate the work Success Academy is doing.
Eva Moskowitz also promoted Education Institute so that educators are aware it exists. She spoke to news media, and sent out the Academy’s entire reading lessons to more than 15,000 school officials across the nation in an attempt to get their attention.
Success Academy and Eva Moskowitz are not stopping there, however. The charter network also owns a New York City condo that they are going to use to train educators from other schools in how Success Academy operates and why its students are as successful as they are.
Executives from the Academy spent more than two years developing Ed Institute and its digital platform. They hope that it is able to help tens of thousands of school teachers across America offer a higher quality education to their students than they are currently getting.
Meanwhile, Eva Moskowitz was also in Washington, D.C. this month where she accepted the Broad Prize on behalf of Success Academy.
The prize is awarded annually to the charter network that is getting the best academic achievements, and is just another indication of how the nation’s educators may want to take advantage of Ed Institute and everything it has to offer.
