AFC Congratulates Betsy DeVos on Nomination for U.S. Secretary of Education

Nov 23, 2016 | Press Release

The American Federation for Children issued the following statement upon the nomination of Betsy DeVos as the nation’s 11th U.S. Secretary of Education. Most recently, DeVos has served the chairman of the American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice.

John F. Kirtley, vice chairman of the American Federation for Children said:

“We applaud President-elect Donald Trump for choosing and placing his trust in Betsy DeVos to serve as the next U.S. Secretary of Education. For more than 20 years, Betsy has fought relentlessly for the right of every child – especially disadvantaged children – to receive a quality education of their parents’ choice. We are confident Betsy will take the same passion, commitment and leadership she’s shown in the school choice movement to the helm of the U.S. Department of Education.”


The American Federation for Children is the nation’s leading school choice advocacy organization and works in states across the country to help secure additional, high-quality educational options for families.

Research once again shows school choice is working!

I support public schools and think we should be funding them. It’s easy for “ choice”schools to claim success when they don’t have to take the children who are more difficult to educate.
Because most of voucher users are already the rich and would already be headed to colleges. And handicapped and troubled kids are sent back to the public schools
they have booted out the "problem kids" and sent them back to the public schools who's funding has been cut because of the vouchers. When my kids were young you paid for the other schools out of your own pockets. there was no hand outs to pay for the "better" schools. And also paid taxes for schools too, and most getting the vouchers can afford to pay for the private schools. I stopped when I couldn't afford it any more and feel the kids got a better education out of going to public schools which offered more choices....
