Jean Evans has been chosen to lead the Missouri arm of the American Federation for Children, a pro-school choice education advocacy organization. Evans was picked to lead the Missouri Federation for Children with a focus on implementing the new education savings account program that passed through the legislature this year. The new ESA program allows taxpayers to claim a credit on qualifying contributions to education assistance programs. The funds are pooled in ESAs for students to use on tuition, textbooks, tutoring services, and other associated costs with charter, private, public, or virtual schools.
