Our seventh of eight liberty principles is to?”Let parents apply their children?s share of state public education money to the schools they choose for their children.”
Rapper Pitbull was the recent keynote speaker for a Charter Schools conference. ?Daniel Doherty of Townhall.com blogs:
Pitbull, whose given name is Armando Christian Perez, delivered the opening address at the National Charter Schools Conference in Washington, D.C., last week.?Perez has six children, three of whom attend charter schools.
?I believe in the system. I?ve seen it with my own eyes,? the entertainertold?the crowd of charter schools advocates at the conference. ?Every day I see firsthand how my children are becoming highly motivated thanks to the charter schools they attend.?
Perez is so?convinced?of the power of charter schools to ?revolutionize education in America? that he is providing backing for a new charter school in his old inner-city neighborhood of Little Havana.
Charter schools ?are fundamentally about freedom, and freedom is what America is all about,? the rapper proclaimed.
