07.01.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Great news from Ohio this late last night, Gov. John Kasich signed the state budget into law which increases EdChoice scholarships amounts, increases the caps on Autism Scholarships and the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship (JPSNS), increases funding to the scholarships in the JPSNS program, and includes a number of other improvements to existing school choice programs. Mike McShane has a column worth reading in this morning’s U.S. News & World Report. In case you missed it, yesterday another private school choice proponent, Gov. Chris Christie, joined the race for president.
And, our Louisiana affiliate and BAEO released their latest parental satisfaction survey, check out the results here: http://bit.ly/1INv2yr
Have a great day!
