Good Morning

A new BAEO survey shows strong support among black voters for parental choice educational options nationwide and in Louisiana. 

The Louisiana Department of Education has released high school report cards that show improvement on every measure of student achievement.

And with inclement weather on the way this weekend, trick-or-treating has been moved up to tonight in much of Louisiana.

Happy Halloween!– Paul
