School Choice Supporters Advance in Arkansas Primary

The American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice, congratulates all the school choice champions supported by the Arkansas Federation for Children Action Fund in Tuesday’s primary election. The Arkansas Federation for Children Action Fund contacted thousands of voters through mail and digital ads in state races to support school choice proponents during the 2022 primary.
Statement from Tommy Schultz, CEO, American Federation for Children: 
“Tuesday’s primaries are a huge win for the parents and children of Arkansas. Too many students continue to be left behind by the education system’s status quo.  More school choice champions in the General Assembly, along with the support of Republican gubernatorial nominee Sarah Huckabee Sanders, means Arkansas will have more leaders willing to put families first by passing high-quality school choice programs and strengthening Arkansas’ existing programs.”
