Annual reports on the performance of South Carolina's schools, declare the need for real reform. That reform cannot and will not happen without the bold leadership from our public school officials. South Carolina needs leaders in education who realize that one size does not fit all and that reform requires a willingness to change.
There are many alternatives that have proven to be successful such as charter schools, real school choice that supports private schools and home-schooling as well as programs where private and public schools work together.
South Carolina needs to attract the type of businesses that will strengthen the state's economy and in turn improve communities. This type of economic goal requires nothing short of a school system that produces a competitive workforce.
