Good afternoon:

It’s the last day of July, which means August begins tomorrow and back to school season is underway. Starting Monday, we will kick of “41 Days of School Choice” as we celebrate back to school season and all of the 41 educational choice programs nationwide. In case you missed it, here’s the link to Jalen Rose talking school choice on Fox Business.
Have a great night!
