03.24.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Interesting story from The Detroit News, in “East Detroit,” teacher union members and education reform activists rallied in support of public school choice, although support for public school choice from the status quo was motivated purely out of economic concern.
Have a great morning,
Matt
