DeVos, a former Michigan Republican Party chairwoman, serves as the current chairman of The American Federation for Children, an education advocacy group that pushes for school choice policies. The mission statement of the organization reads “The American Federation for Children and the American Federation for Children Growth Fund seek to improve our nation’s K-12 education by advancing systemic and sustainable public policy that empowers parents, particularly those in low-income families, to choose the education they determine is best for their children.”
