09.19.2014 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Something horrible happened in an Alabama public school and it was covered up, then the adults involved either kept their jobs or were promoted. This is an example of the status quo protecting its own and a stark reminder why alternatives, options and choices should be available to parents.
In a more positive news, in case you missed it, here’s a touching story of a child who went from a homeless shelter to the honor roll and continues to give back to his community.
Have a great morning,
Matt
