CEO and Founder of Success Academy in New York
As founder and CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools, the largest and best-performing public charter school network in New York City, I have made it my mission to challenge the conventional wisdom that children from low-income, minority neighborhoods cannot achieve at the highest academic levels. Since I opened the first Success Academy in Harlem in 2006, I have been a leader in education reform, offering parents an alternative to chronically failing schools and helping thousands of inner-city children fulfill their academic potential. Today, Success Academy operates 46 schools and employs hundreds of teachers and other professionals.
