Description
Harvin C. Moore has volunteered in public education since 1989 when he began tutoring in New York City's East Harlem Tutorial Program, and later in Houston with Communities in Schools. Harvin joined the original board of the KIPP Academy in 1996 and served as Treasurer and Vice Chairman as it began its national expansion. From a desire to broaden the effect of education reform to more children who desperately need it, he ran for and was elected to the Houston Independent School District Board of Education in 2003, where he has served for three terms and as President in 2008. Harvin is an executive in the aerospace industry, where he first worked as a college intern on the launch crew of the first privately funded rocket to reach outer space in 1982. He contends that school reform is not rocket science. He also contends they are both hard work. Harvin publishes The Transformation Times, a blog centered on public education reform issues, at http://www.harvinmoore.com, and tweets @harvinmoore.
