AFC Applauds Missouri’s School Choice Winners

The American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice, congratulates all the Missouri candidates supported by the Missouri Federation for Children PAC during Tuesday’s primary election.  The MFC PAC invested more than $500,000 in state races to support school choice proponents during the 2022 primary. Missouri’s 2021 and 2022 legislative sessions saw incredible expansion of opportunities for students – first by creating the Missouri Empowerment Scholarship Account Program then by “fixing the glitch” that previously led charter schools to be funded at significantly lower rates than district schools. Statement from Jean Evans, State Lead, American Federation for Children-Missouri:  “Parents are making their voices heard across the state, including at the ballot box, demanding educational options and reminding elected officials that students are not one-size-fits-all. Missouri’s leaders should recognize that fact by continuing to champion school choice legislation that allows the next generation of students to access options as unique as the students themselves.”  Details: The following successful candidates were supported by the Missouri Federation for Children PAC:

  • Travis Fitzwater – SD 10
  • Jeff Myers – HD 42
  • Jim Schulte – HD 49
  • Tony Lovasco – HD 64
  • Holly Jones – HD 88
  • Brad Christ – HD 96
  • Lisa Thomas – HD 123
  • Darin Chappell – HD 137
  • Mitch Boggs – HD 157

Missouri Federation for Children PAC also opposed the following unsuccessful candidates, based on their stance against education freedom:

  • Jeff Roorda – SD 22
  • Nate Tate – SD 26
