08.22.2014 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good Morning:

AFC and PEFNC responded to yesterday’s disappointing ruling in North Carolina, where a Superior Court judge is allowing politics to get in the way of a child’s right to attend a quality school of their parents’ choice. And, today is Day 15 of the #41Days initiative, and we head back to Ohio to celebrate the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program.
 
Have a great Friday,
Matt
