A BETTER EDUCATION STARTS WITH CHOICE

Here at the American Federation for Children, we seek to fund students, not systems – no matter their family’s zip code.

OUR MISSION

The American Federation for Children seeks to empower families, especially lower-income families, with the freedom to choose the best K-12 education for their children. We believe parents should have a wide range of options to choose from – be it traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, homeschooling, private schools, or virtual learning. AFC works in states across America to advance the mission of expanding school choice for families.
