Dr. Steve Perry Asks ‘Why on Earth’ is the NAACP Calling For A Moratorium On Charter Schools?

In an unprecedented move to uphold a pervasive and negative narrative the NAACP recently called for a moratorium on all charter schools citing a ‘lack of transparency, accountability, and harsh disciplinary practices.’ The move comes after many African-American advocates of charter schools including prominent educator Dr. Steve Perry and celebrity producer Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and parents have become more vocal about the success of these schools and the students they graduate. Dr. Perry called the moratorium “absurd” and “misguided” charging the NAACP as being “significantly detached from what’s happening at the local level.” Read more about Dr. Perry’s response and his plans to promote school choice in the African-American community here.
