01.27.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

National School Choice Week is underway, here’s a highlight video from the first day. Speaker John Boehner will keynote the bipartisan DC National School Choice Week Celebration tomorrow on Capitol Hill. Kevin P. Chavous and Howard Fuller will be in Alabama tomorrow and there is a school choice tour is underway in Louisiana. Of course, that’s only a fraction of the 11,000+ events taking place nationwide. Finally, today the Alliance for School Choice will announce a half million dollar media buy to promote the PSA, “Educational Choice Now” that will air throughout the week. On social media? Use hashtag #SCW to engage throughout NSCW.
Have a great day!
Matt
