10.01.2014 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Today’s clips feature research on educational choice programs across the country. Be sure to take a look at the Friedman Foundation’s audit of voucher programs, that found private school choice saves states $1.7 billion, and the Center for Education Reform’s Parent Power Index, where Indiana takes the top spot in providing access to educational options.
Also, in case you missed it, AFC wrapped up its #41Days of School Choice initiative yesterday. See every state and program highlighted during the campaign here: http://bit.ly/1yz8DFA.
Have a great day!
