06.03.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Gov. Brian Sandoval signed a sweeping new universal ESA program into law. As many of you know, Florida’s tax credit scholarship program was upheld, here’s a story from the Sun Sentinel worth checking out. In what is hardly a surprise, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s editorial board “knows best” and has come out against expanding Wisconsin’s statewide voucher program to more students. And, Brookings Institute is out with a new report that lists school choice as one of six strategies to improving social mobility (H/T Mike Petrilli).
And, my beloved Detroit Tigers have lost five games in a row. Matter of fact, they’ve only won two of the last ten games. How bad is it to be a Tigers fan right now? This: http://ble.ac/1AKcm5b
Have a great morning!
