She became the chair of the Education Committee of the council, and has visited a number of city schools while doing some investigatory hearings, where she is commonly attributed.

She’s always trying to find new ways on how to improve and innovate, and millions have praised her for her passion to reform the system.
In the year 2006, Eva Moskowitz decided to launch her first school in the district of Harlem, and founded the Success Academy Charter Schools, where she served as the CEO.

It also became the highest performing network of charter school in the city of New York. Success Academy Schools have a huge number of student populations experiencing poverty, but it did not stop them in consistently outperforming the wealthiest school districts in New York City.
