The American Federation for Children (AFC), the nation’s voice for educational choice, applauds the Trump Administration’s push to ensure that every child in America has access to a great education.
“We were pleased to hear the President offer strong support for school choice in his address to the joint session of Congress tonight,” said John Kirtley, vice-chairman of the American Federation for Children. “With the full weight of the Administration joining the 68 percent of Americans who support school choice, there has never been a better time in our country’s history to give more K-12 children better access to a high quality education. Now is the time to act with bold conviction. We urge school choice advocates to work with Congress and the Administration to pass a federal tax credit to encourage charitable giving to state non-profits who will provide scholarships for eligible children to attend the school of their parents’ choice.”
