Who or What is the “American Federation for Children”?

Diane Ravitch's blog

This is news you need to know.

The American Federation of Children is a rightwing organization that spends heavily to promote vouchers and to support candidates in state and local races who support vouchers.

When Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin was under siege for attacking public sector workers, he was honored (along with Michelle Rhee) by the AFS.

The AFS is funded by the DeVos family, whose fortune comes from its ownership of Amway.

It belongs to ALEC.

AFC is opposed to public education.

It is one of the main forces funding privatization, along with the Walton family of Walmart fame and fortune.
