03.09.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

As much of the nation paused to remember Selma and “Bloody Sunday,” I urge you to re-read and share Rev. HK Matthew’s op-ed about the parallels between marching 50 years ago for civil rights and the importance of school choice for low-income children today.
We’re completing a walk through at the AFC Policy Summit venue in New Orleans this morning – if you haven’t registered yet, do so now!
Have a great Monday!
