Eva Moskowitz Wins Charter School Victory

Eva Moskowitz, CEO of Success Academy, champions her charter school through both funding and rights. She recently accepted the Broad Prize, totaling 250,000. This prize is awarded to a charter school that demonstrates academic excellence. Eva Moskowitz will use the grant towards funding programs like their college readiness program and digital curriculum.

Success Academy is being rewarded with this grant for their work towards closing the achievement gap for low-income minority students. Moskowitz is often quoted as saying that zip code shouldn’t determine destiny. The digital curriculum will be an innovative digital file sharing to share out the intellectual materials, like curriculum and training materials.

 

Eva Moskowitz fights for her charter school’s right to operate independent of New York City schools. Success Academy just won a two year legal battle over New York City’s refusal to pay tuition reimbursements due to the school’s not signing the pre-k contract. The contract was tied to the Universal Pre-K initiative, which places certain restrictions on the school day. Students would be limited to time on electronic devices or field trips that require transportation. The state or city has the right to inspect charter schools, but they do not have the right to regulate.

 

The battle had to be taken all the way to the Apellate court. The Education Secretary and the Supreme Court ruled in favor of NYC. But the appeals court judge overturned those rulings, because the contract would give the public school district the right to regulate. Regulation is not one of the rights of the school district.

How Entrepreneur Bruce Bent II Leads In The Financial Industry

Money market funds are a type of mutual fund that conservatively invests in short-term debt securities. They are designed to offer better returns than savings accounts while not taking on the risk and volatility of assets such as stocks. The primary things they are invested in includes US Treasury bill and commercial paper.
Money market funds were invented in 1971 by two financial industry veterans. They named their fund the Reserve Fund. Their fund was used by people and corporations who were primarily interested in preserving their wealth by investing safe assets that paid more than a basic savings account did. Eventually, with the success of money market funds, mutual funds overall started to be used more and more by people who wanted to limit their risk and increase their diversity by investing in as many companies as possible vs. investing in just one or a few companies.
Money market funds are regulated by the US Securities and Exchange Commission. They must follow strict rules in order to assure their safety. Among these rules is that no more than 5% of the money market fund can be invested in any one issuer with the sole exception of US Treasuries. They must also only buy debt that matures in less than 13 months. Another rule is that the weighted average maturity of their investments has to be less than 60 days.

Just like his father, Bruce Bent II is also in the financial industry. He is the CEO of Double Rock Corporation, one of the world’s largest providers of money market funds. He has been with Double Rock since 1991 and has also earned the positions of Vice Chairman of the Board and President.
As an entrepreneur, Bruce Bent II has innovated in the financial sector. He has created over 50 financial patents that he has used to create various types of funds at his company. Additionally, he also founded another financial company called B2 Consulting LLC where he offers his advice to other companies who need his experience to successfully navigate the financial marketplace.

George Soros: A continued legacy of philanthropy

With donations exceeding $12 billion, George Soros is one of the world’s leading philanthropists. Funding organizations and individuals fighting internationally for responsible governments, freedom of expression, transparency, social justice and equality.

Soros was born in Hungary, which he later fled, and studied in the London School of Economics, paying for his schooling by working as a railway porter and waiter. This was before he began working at merchant bank, starting his career in finance. He then moved to New York, where he got his start in Wall Street and in 1969 established a $12 million hedge fund, later named Quantum Fund. Soros is considered an investment heavyweight, and manages his family office, the Soros Fund Management, which is worth $30 billion in assets. Read more on NYTimes.com

His philanthropic focus; on fighting against discrimination and for equality, stems from his own experiences in intolerance. He experienced the Nazi occupation in 1944-1945 in Hungary; his family survived the mass murders of Jews by concealing their identities and helping others do the same. To Soros, these actions during this difficult time highlight the importance of resisting evil, and helping others. It is in this spirit that George Soros created the Open Society Foundations (OSF), a network spanning more than 100 countries, which includes projects, partners, and foundations. Starting by providing scholarships to black South Africans under apartheid, and supported the exchange of ideas in the Communist Easter Bloc. He also created the Central European University, to provide a space for critical thinking. After the Cold War, he expanded his charitable activities to United States, Africa, and Asia. His efforts there focused on the creation of more democratic societies. His ideals mirror those of an open society.

Soros’s social efforts extend beyond his foundations, to support other organizations committed to similar causes, such as Global Witness, the International Crisis Group, the European Council on Foreign Relations, and the Institute for New Economic Thinking. Read his profile at Business Insider.

In his commitment to fighting oppression and supporting more open and just societies, with transparent governments, Soros used his wealth and connections to support political change in several countries around the world. This includes financially supporting movements and charters that are working towards recognition of human rights. One example is his support of the 1976 “Charter 77” which demanded the Czech government recognize some basic human rights. This spurred a growth of a political movement and ultimately the velvet revolution, bringing down Czechoslovakia’s Communist regime. According to him, this wealth allowed him the freedom to shape a path towards a more equitable and open world.

Even at 80, Soros continues to actively participate in the OSF’s activities, traveling the globe to promote its mission and advocating for positive policy changes.
