“Our organization has witnessed an unprecedented growth in the awareness and number of K-12 educational choice programs over the last decade. Greg Brock and John Schilling have been key players throughout this time in the movement to provide parents more and better options when it comes to their child’s education. As the American Federation for Children seeks to expand our horizons in the coming years to open the doors to a high quality education for even more students, we want to elevate and leverage our talented, dedicated leadership in this endeavor. I’m thankful for their tireless work thus far in our rapidly growing organization and am looking forward to even greater successes in the years to come.”
