Eddie Rispone is the former chair of the Louisiana Federation for Children (LFC), a state branch of the American Federation for Children (AFC), the school choice organization formerly chaired by US ed sec, Betsy DeVos, and also the former treasurer of the Louisiana Federation for Children Action Fund PAC.
Rispone is in the November 16, 2019, runoff for Louisiana governor against incumbent John Bel Edwards.
In his views on education, Rispone follows the lead of DeVos.
In this June 2016 video, LFC chair Rispone is pitching for Louisiana school vouchers.
I have transcribed the 2 1/2-minute video in full, below:
I would ask that this (fully funding Louisiana school vouchers) is not a Democrat, this is not a Republican, this is not affluent, this is not a low- or middle-income issue. This is for our children.
It’s the only way we’re going to improve our society.
