Good Morning

On election day we’re watching the Orleans Parish School Board races in New Orleans. Nationally, one of the bigger contests that will impact educational choice is the vote to allow the for the expansion of charter schools in Massachusetts and Georgia’s Amendment 1 to create the Opportunity School District.

Day 7 of “24 Days of Giving Thanks” features Good Shepherd School president/principal Thomas Moran, Jr.

Have a great day and if you haven’t done so, don’t forget to vote! – Paul
