No charter school network has generated as much controversy as New York City’s Success Academy. Founded in 2006 by Eva Moskowitz, the schools have gained renown for their unprecedented success on standardized tests. At the same time, some critics have forcefully criticized Moskowitz and aspects of the schools’ culture.

In this episode, Host Nat Malkus talks to Robert Pondiscio, author of “How the Other Half Learns: Equality, Excellence, and the Battle Over School Choice”. Pondiscio spent a year embedded in a Success Academy school, observing what makes Moskowitz’s model so distinctive. Pondiscio not only offers a fascinating window into Success, but discusses vital political questions surrounding public education and school choice.
