American Federation For Children Congratulates Alabama For Passing School Choice Bill

The American Federation for Children—the nation’s voice for educational choice—today applauded the Alabama legislature for passing and Governor Robert Bentley (R) for his intention to sign, a revamped education bill aimed at providing families with educational options. House Bill 84 passed on Thursday, providing students with the opportunity to transfer out of failing schools and into private, parochial, or other public schools through individual and corporate tax credits.
