AFC Congratulates Jake Merrick on His Election Night Victory in Oklahoma

The American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice, congratulates Jake Merrick for his victory in tonight’s special election for Oklahoma Senate District 22.

The Oklahoma Federation for Children Action Fund supports candidates who fight to ensure a range of high-quality educational options exist for each and every child regardless of ZIP code, including everything from better public schools to homeschooling to charter schools to private schools.

Statement from Jennifer Carter, Oklahoma Senior Advisor for the American Federation for Children:

“The past year has made clear how important it is for parents to have a voice in education policies that impact their children. Jake Merrick is an unabashed champion of parents, campaigning to make certain that the wishes of Oklahoma families will be front and center—and not sidelined—on decisions impacting their children’s education. AFC commends Merrick for taking on the status quo to provide a better future for all children.”
