ABOUT AFC

FUND STUDENTS,
NOT SYSTEMS

When funding for education follows students to the school of their choice, families win.

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 all parents should have a wide range of high-quality educational options to choose from, regardless of income. AFC works in states across the country to help parents find the options available to them, and push for legislators to pass more programs that fund students, not systems.
