A Note Written by a Teacher at Success Academy Who Quit

Diane Ravitch's blog

This note was posted earlier today, in response to an earlier post about child abuse at Eva Moskowitz’s Success Academy:

I also was a teacher with Success Academy and decided to end my employment with them in the first year of my contract. I witnessed, every single day, countless instances just like these. Although there was no ripping of papers I did see teachers grabbing students by the scruff of their necks, ordering children (as young as kindergarten ) around as if they were animals, and the insane programming they put these kids through. They don’t teach or nurture bright minds, they belittle and scold students for being kids. They aren’t allowed to move, they aren’t allowed to speak for almost the full 8 hours they are there.
