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.

Goldenberg finished his high school studies and promptly relocated. He became a member of the Intermix Media staff at that time. He worked as the company’s strategic planning Vice President. Goldenberg received an appealing promotion when he was roughly 20 years old. That’s when he landed a position as Chief Operating Officer.

They did so the following year. They launched Intelligent Beauty in 2006 on onmogul.com. Intelligent Beauty was an e-commerce platform. Goldenberg and Ressler worked hard to introduce the concept of individualized shopping to the world. Their goal was to combine social interaction with all of the latest fashions.
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.
