T. Willard Fair: How School Choice Benefits Black America

July 5, 2017

T. Willard Fair, president and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Miami, Inc., explains why education choice is in demand in the black community and why he's grown to distrust unions, politicians, and bureaucrats who consistently break their promises.

T. Willard Fair, president and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Miami, Inc., worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights movement of the 1960s. On this episode of Heartland's education podcast, Fair describes his experiences and explains how the black community of the United States is not as far along today as it should be. Fair discusses why the NAACP's call for a moratorium on charter schools is a mistake and why Black America, which votes more for school choice than any other demographic, would benefit dramatically by the freedom to choose in education.
