Corey Deangelis is a senior fellow at the American Federation for Children and a strong advocate for funding students instead of systems, commonly known as school choice policies. These policies allow funding to follow the child to their preferred educational institution, be it public, private, charter, or home-based. Education Savings Accounts are a recent example, enabling families to use a portion of the funding to cover approved educational expenses. Deangelis argues that the biggest problem with the education system is that it forces families to send their children to residentially assigned, one-size-fits-all government institutions. He believes that by allowing funding to follow the child, the education system can better align with parents’ values and create competition that benefits everyone, including teachers. Deangelis sees school choice as an equalizer and a way to improve the education system by introducing competition and empowering families with more options.
