AFC teams up with local partners to educate parents on education options in Indianapolis

By Lindsey Rust, national director of implementation for AFC

Last night, the American Federation for Children partnered with the Indianapolis Urban League to host a workshop to give parents information about the educational choice programs and options available in their community. The event featured presenters from three Indianapolis area schools as well as the Institute for Quality Education and GreatSchools.

Dozens of parents and children braved the weather and turned out to the Concord/Eagle Creek Neighborhood Center, on the city’s west side, to learn how to apply for programs and hear from participating schools including the Avondale Meadows Academy, Flanner House Elementary School and The Oaks Academy. School representatives discussed the enrollment process, curriculum and provided parents with resources to assist with academic planning for their children.

 We were very excited to join with our allies as we help parents learn more about the educational options available to them in Indianapolis.

AFC looks forward to continuing to engage parents and community leaders and break down barriers to educational choice.

This workshop is one of many events put on by the American Federation for Children, the Alliance for School Choice and its allies across the country to help educate parents and facilitate program application processes.
