When it is time to change, then it is time to change. This change often comes with growth, and that growth comes with pain. It is called “growing pain”. But it does not have to be so bad. At least, that is just one of the thoughts Eva Moskowitz has to have in the course of the year while Success Academy serves so many families. Still, there is so much more she can be doing to serve the community. Unfortunately, there are the rules and regulations of City Hall that stand in her way.
According to Success Academy officials, their power to do about the growing need they see between available space and applicant families is being blocked by the mayor of NYC (New York City). What makes this situation a big deal and problem for Success Academy is that the seats they are allowed access to total about 144,000 seats, which for than enough to solve their availability demand crunch they face in their everyday profession. On a high note, the school has plans to christen two new schools in 2017.
Thinking along the same track, Success Academy has the needs that a fairly expansive education system needs to continue to do their most important jobs. They already have 41 schools along all seven boroughs in NYC, except for Staten Island. Just as a side note, more than 95 per cent of the academy’s students are in the demographic minority. Also 77 per cent of them come from low income families. That what makes these finding charter school space for these children is so important.
