Carolina Classrooms Talks Education Equity
Wednesday night at 7:00 on SCETV, Carolina Classrooms, together with the American Graduate project, will air a special town hall meeting from Francis Marion University. Discussions range from the Abbeville Equity in Education decision to the future of education in South Carolina. Since the S.C. Supreme Court ruling, lawmakers have been charged with responding to the inequalities in education in our state. What does this decision mean and how will the issues be addressed? We’ll ask educators, legislators and community leaders to discuss the challenges that school districts face in educating children in poverty. The program will seek solutions and feature initiatives that are finding success.
After the taping of the program, the audience interacted with the panel to give their thoughts on education in the Palmetto State.
