Good Morning

Another school opening celebration this week. Twelve years after Hurricane Katrina, Pierre Capdau Charter School celebrated the reopening of the Avery Alexander school building in New Orleans. http://bit.ly/2gfIGpJ

We have op-eds from AFC’s Kevin P. Chavous and John Schilling, both discussing the need to expand educational choice in light of the recent Urban Institute study:
