Donald Trump is considering charter school advocate and and founder of Success Academies in Harlem Eva Moskowitz to serve as education secretary, according to a senior Trump official.
The official says Moskowitz, the founder of Success Academy Charter Schools, was at Trump Tower Wednesday meeting with the president-elect’s team reports source.
Moskowitz is a former New York City councilwoman and a Democrat. She’s clashed with Mayor Bill de Blasio over the expansion of some of her charter schools.
De Blasio was also at Trump Tower Wednesday meeting with the president-election.
The Trump official discussed Moskowitz on the condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to publicly discuss the internal transition process.
