Education as Ms. Eva Moskowitz sees it

Ms. Eva Moskowitz is the founder and CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools and a former City Council member for the Upper East Side in New York City. Reports of widespread of cheating by students and a cover up by principal by New York Magazine during her early life and education transformed her into a lasting critique of the New York public school system. She graduated from University Pennsylvania with B.A. with honors in History and received her Ph.D. in American history from John Hopkins University in 1991.

 

Ms. Eva Moskowitz has a successful career as teacher, administrator, an entrepreneur, and politician. She started as a visiting professor of communications and mass culture at the University of Virginia(1989-1990). She served as an assistant professor of history at both Vanderbilt University (1992-1993) and City University of New York (College of Staten Island)(1994-1995) and a faculty seminar in American studies chairwoman at the Columbia University (1996-1999). She doubled as directors of ReadNet children’s literacy program, and public affairs and taught civics at the preparatory school. She is the CEO of a thriving Success Academy Charter Schools.

 

Eva Moskowitz expresses her candid and divergent views about the inadequacies of the American basic educational system. She bemoaned the abysmal falling standards in education stating that the highest performing students in America are worse than lowest performing students in other countries. She attributes the nonperformance of students due to the educational structure, curricula, and methods of teaching. She does not support public non-charter schools for middle-class and affluent districts because they are not effective as parents think. Moskowitz called for more concerted efforts to assist struggling students by improving school programs and identifying and helping students with learning disabilities earlier. She argues that the public elementary school curricula are not challenging enough for students making many students bored at school. She and Arin Lavinia wrote that the math syllabi are taught rather at low pace as if time was of no essence and argued for a much speedy teaching. 

Bruce Bent II: the Brilliant Mind behind Money Market Funds

Money market funds have become one of the most popular ways of saving money, and for good reasons. First off, they provide higher returns than bank deposits yet the level of risk involved is believed to be just as low as the risk involved in bank deposits. However, the returns they provide are relatively low compared to more risky investments such as stocks and long-term debt. The risk inherent in money market funds is low because the funds are highly liquid as the securities invested mature in a few months.

The securities invested include short-term bonds, such as treasury bills, repurchase agreements, and commercial paper among others. Both individuals and corporations can have money market fund shares, and these can be purchased through brokerage firms, mutual funds, and even banks. Bruce Bent II is the brilliant mind that invented the first money market fund in the world in 1970.

Money market funds ensure that investors receive, at the very least, the amount of money they invested. This prevents them from losing their money. Money market funds are now used all over the world.

Anyone seeking higher returns on their savings without taking on too much risk should consider purchasing money market fund shares. For more than 4 decades they have been in use, they have proven to be one of the safest investments an investor can make.
