Eva Moskowitz is a pioneering and sometimes controversial figure in urban politics and American education. And she is well known as the founder of Success Academy Charter Schools, a network of more than 40 high performing schools in New York City.

On today’s episode, we will hear about her new book, “The Education of Eva Moskowitz – A Memoir.” Of course the book talks about how she built the Success Academy, in the midst of sometimes rough-and-tumble NYC politics. Beyond that, with Eva’s characteristic “radical candor,” the book tells the story of her own life and career, complete with emotional ups and downs.

In the conversation, as she describes the Success Academy’s philosophy and programs, Eva also shares tips for building a career in education today.
