Texas Voters Advance School Choice Champions

Texas voters in Tuesday’s runoff elections chose to nominate school choice champions in both parties. The election results are in line with numerous public polls that have found strong, bipartisan support for school choice in Texas and the nation.
Statement from Mandy Drogin, Texas State Director for the American Federation for Children:
“Between the March primary elections and the July runoff elections, Texas voters in both parties have nominated more than a dozen candidates supported by the Texas Federation for Children PAC who understand that parents need more high-quality educational options for their children.”
“We had such great success because we stand on the right side of history in our fight to ensure that every child has an opportunity to attend a great school.  With these victories, we’re making steady progress towards the day when all Texas families, especially lower-income families, will have the freedom to choose the best K-12 education for their children.”
