Video: Civil rights activist Dr. Howard Fuller stands up for education choice


• James Paul

Last month, ExcelinEd hosted a thousand state and national policymakers, education leaders and advocates at the 2018 National Summit on Education Reform (#EIE18). Today, we’ve released videos of keynote speaker Dr. Howard Fuller.

A longtime civil rights activist, Dr. Fuller was instrumental in launching the nation’s first school voucher program in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He provides a unique perspective—and unmatched passion—on the subject of education choice.

At the National Summit, Dr. Fuller declared, “I will stand as long as I can to fight for the right of poor people to have choice in America.”
