12.10.2014 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

It’s a sunny and crisp morning in the nation’s capital. For those of you (myself included) who need to still do their Christmas shopping, we only have 14 days left.
Yesterday, our allies at BAEO released a new survey, “2014 BAEO Southern Survey on Parental Choice and Education Reform.” Sen. Ted Cruz pledged to make school choice a focus of the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights subcommittee. And, in case your morning needs a quick pick-me-up, here’s your feel good moment of the week.
Have a great Wednesday!
Matt
