Good Morning

Please check out John Schilling’s op-ed on the opportunity tax reform could provide to parents in giving them greater control of their child’s education. John is AFC’s chief operation officer. http://bit.ly/2vPtxAB

And this Chicago Tribune commentary looking at hypocritical politicians (they’re everywhere) who oppose school choice : “The elitism of opposing school choice.”

The General Assembly is packed with lawmakers who attended private schools and send their kids to private schools.

But they don’t believe in extending that opportunity to poverty-stricken families. Why? They think it would hurt the public school system — the one they didn’t use either.

Have a great holiday weekend! – Paul
