02.24.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – afternoon edition

Good afternoon:

We had some positive momentum out of Oklahoma today, the Senate Finance Committee passed the Oklahoma Education Empowerment Act (SB 609) out of committee. Gov. Chris Christie included opportunity scholarships in his budget address.
And, here’s your afternoon reading assignment: “What Personalized Learning Means in My Family.”
Have a great night,
Matt
