12.09.2014 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty issued a new report comparing accountability laws applied to the state’s choice schools verse public schools [spoiler alert: choice schools are held to higher standards].
In case you missed it, Derrell Bradford wrote a provocative and thought provoking blog relating to our work in education reform and the untimely death of Eric Garner. Be sure to read the full blog before responding (H/T to Ed Kirby for passing along).
Have a great morning,
Matt
