Newark Mayor Cory Booker offered a stirring, soaring plea for expanded school choice today, in the close-out speech at the American Federation for Children summit in New Jersey. Here’s a taste:

“Every child born we recognize by our founding principles is born and created in the reflection of the divine. They have innate and endowed by their creator the ability to achieve incredible things. But yet, we’ve created a system that still chokes out the potential of millions of children, who are trapped in systems that deny this nation the benefit of their genius.”
