Howard Fuller Puts Democratic Presidential Candidates on Notice

Dr. Howard Fuller is a longtime civil rights activist and school reform advocate who supports “parent choice.” He believes that parents should have the power to choose schools instead of schools having the power to choose them. He calls it self-determination.

Fuller has taken his conviction in that belief to Columbus, Ohio, the site of tonight’s Democratic presidential debate. In fact, he has been outside the venue since 6 am this morning and his message for the candidates is clear—click the link below to hear him. He does not mince his words.
