Good Morning

On Monday, the Education Research Alliance for New Orleans will release a series of four new studies on the Louisiana Scholarship Program. In conjunction with the reports’ release, a panel discussion will be held with state leaders – including LFC president Ann Duplessis – and the authors of the reports. The panel discussion is open to the public and will take place on Monday, Feb. 22, at 4 pm at the Capitol Park Welcome Center in Baton Rouge.

The presidential campaign comes to Louisiana, as early voting for the March 5 presidential primary begins on Saturday.

Have a great weekend- Paul
