Formerly known as the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, EdChoice is the oldest school choice advocacy group in the nation.
EdChoice is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization driven by a shared mission to advance a K-12 education system where all families, regardless of race, origin, or income, are free to choose a learning environment—public or private, near or far, religious or secular—that works best for their children.
Formerly known as the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, EdChoice is the oldest school choice advocacy group in the nation. Founded by Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman and his wife, Rose, in 1996, we champion universal educational school choice programs at the state level with original research, focused state investments, and training and outreach programs.
We believe all students, regardless of where they live or how much their families earn, should be able to access a school that meets their needs. Although that could be a charter school, a magnet school, homeschooling, or a traditional public school, EdChoice’s advocacy focuses primarily on helping more families access private schooling options.
