55% : Just declaring that "all children achieved mastery," writes Moscowitz, "would cheat students with real gaps of the education they deserve."
54% : The SA schools shifted to remote learning days before Mayor Bill de Blasio followed suit -- and SA kids didn't lose a week of classes while the network figured out how to do it.
54% : Sadly, cheating such kids is standard operating procedure for the city's regular public schools.
51% : The devotion to excellence of the adults and the kids at Success helps explain why this year's graduating seniors all won college acceptance, though nearly all these students are low-income.
49% : Success Academy
47% : At Success, we believe it would be an abdication of our responsibility to treat grades like candy and to have no standards for ourselves or your children."
46% : In stark contrast to the regular public system and even many private schools, the Success Academy charter network announced Monday that it will continue giving its students grades this year.
40% : Some systems are ditching grades this year "in the name of equity," she noted, "but the outcomes for children will be far from fair."
39% : Wrote network CEO Eva Moskowitz to student families:
32% : All 53 eighth graders at Success Academy Bronx 2, scored 5 out of 5 on the statewide Regents algebra exam last year.
27% : Even now, the city Department of Education is using the pandemic as an excuse to delay the long approval process for the temporary siting of new middle school space in Queens for Success this fall.
18% : Meanwhile, de Blasio's schools are going pass/fail for grades K-8, as some call for all seniors to graduate automatically -- which would make most diplomas worthless.
16% : Because it isn't fair not to.
