Gov. Doug Ducey, School Choice Supporter, Wins Handily in Arizona

The American Federation for Children (AFC), the nation’s voice for educational choice, applauds Governor Doug Ducey as he defeats anti-school choice candidate David Garcia in the Arizona gubernatorial race.

Statement from Kim Martinez, Arizona Communications Director for the American Federation for Children: 

“Governor Ducey is a pro-education, pro-school choice Governor whose leadership has resulted in higher pay for teachers as well as more educational choice options for families. Gov. Ducey is a staunch supporter of Arizona’s Empowerment Scholarship Account program which helps disadvantaged children, many with special needs, access different types of schools or curriculum. We applaud all he has accomplished so far to improve education in Arizona and look forward to working with Gov. Ducey in the future as he helps meet the education needs of all Arizona children.”

The American Federation for Children is the nation’s leading school choice advocacy organization and works in states across the country to help secure additional, high-quality educational options for families.
