In letters to both presidential campaigns, debate commission, Federation urges greater focus on key issue affecting America’s economic future

WASHINGTON, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – The American Federation for Children—the nation’s voice for school choice—today called on both the Commission on Presidential Debates and the moderator of Wednesday’s first scheduled debate to include questions on education reform among those posed to President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney.

The letter, sent last week to the Commission as well as PBS NewsHour host Jim Lehrer—who will moderate the first debate this Wednesday in Denver—urges the inclusion of questions about education reform, and specifically educational choice, in a debate scheduled to focus on domestic policy. It follows letters sent to both the Obama and Romney campaigns in July of this year requesting the candidates’ views on educational choice. The Romney campaign responded that the governor favors greater public and private school choice.  The Obama campaign did not respond.  The Administration has been supportive of public charter schools, though opposed to other forms of educational choice such as the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, the only federally-funded voucher program in the country.
