02.13.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

A prominent community and religious leader in Florida is calling out the NAACP. And, in Wisconsin there is a largely hyped up story about School Choice Wisconsin (SCW) making an public records request for “student information.” The truth behind this story is that SCW made a rather routine request for information in order to educate parents about their educational options.
Happy Friday the 13th ,
