09.30.2014 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Believe it or not, today is day “41” of our #41Days initiative! Thanks to everyone who helped us promote all 41 educational choice programs nationwide.
And, let me leave you with this thought to start your day: If education is the defining civil rights issue of our time, than what does is say about the union bosses and education establishment who use courts to sue and block low-income children from obtaining access to quality educational options?
Have a great morning,
