Pitbull's Miami charter school, Sports Leadership and Management (SLAM), opened this fall in Little Havana. And now, thanks to his efforts, Mr. Worldwide has received a new title: Mr. Education.
"They're already labeling me 'Mr. Education,'" Pitbull said during an interview with NPR.
"A lot of these kids are so creative, but no one believes in them. No one motives them," he said. "I relate to them but then I give it to them raw."
According to NPR, three of Pitbull's six children attend charter schools. "I'm not just a charter school advocate, I'm a charter school parent," Pitbull said at this year's National Charter School Conference in D.C. "And that makes me one of you."
