06.23.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Filing today’s clips from New Orleans. AFC hosted a dessert reception last night at the Napoleon House. Great to see so many allies in the charter movement as well as some new friends who believe in all options for all children.
Campbell Brown launched a new education-focused media platform, The 74 Million, dedicated to the 74 million children in classrooms across America, more from the Wall Street Journal here. In case you missed it, Campbell spoke at our summit in a Q&A format.
Have a great day,
