Video: Pharrell Williams on why education in America has got to change

Pharrell is a global icon. He has sold more than 1 million albums, performed on every corner of the globe and earlier this year he called to ask how he can help kids. You're going to see how this American music phenomenon is the epitome of Perry's Principles. He proves the first of Perry's Principles – everyone should care about public education because everybody can do something to improve it.

Pharrell is intelligent and engaging. I'm sure you'll be as impressed as I was by the depth of his thoughts. I left the interview inspired.

Join us on AC360° tonight at 11 p.m. ET as we debut 'Perry's Principles,' a weekly series that highlights solutions to some of America's most pressing issues in education.
