Texas Voters Elect School Choice Champions in Both Parties

The American Federation for Children, the nation’s voice for educational choice, congratulates the winning candidates who support educational choice on their successes in the Texas General Election. The election results are in line with numerous public polls that have found strong, bipartisan support for school choice.

Statement from Mandy Drogin, Texas State Director for the American Federation for Children:

“In Tuesday’s elections, Texas voters chose to send to Austin legislators from both parties who agree that the schoolchildren of Texas deserve more high quality educational options.”

“Candidates who support educational choice had such great success because they stand on the right side of history in the fight to ensure that every child has an opportunity to attend a great school.  With these victories steady progress is being made toward the day all Texas families, especially lower income families, will have the freedom to choose the best K-12 education for their children.”
