Good morning:

Kent Grusendorf and Michael Barba of the Texas Public Policy Foundation had guest column appear in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend. The Florida Association of School Administrators are dropping out of the anti-educational choice lawsuit.
And, we’re one week from opening day (Go Tigers!), the Big Ten currently holds 50 percent of the final four slots in the NCAA Tournament and just be happy that your Monday is going better than this: http://bit.ly/1bIZ7pQ
Have a great one!
