BROOKLYN - Brooklyn-raised musician Wyclef Jean is unveiling his campaign goals as he runs to become the next president of Haiti.

Jean says that providing free education to families of students will be a top priority and he is looking at how donors in Kenya and Morocco are taking responsibility for children from first grade to eighth grade.

Jean filed papers last week to enter the race as he said he hopes to lead his native country out of the devastation caused by the 7.0-magnitude earthquake in January.
