Teacher shortages are a nationwide concern. On October 24, education leaders met at USC College of Education's Center for Innovation in Higher Education for a discussion titled "Addressing Talent Management in our Education System: A Case for Teacher Recruitment and Retention."

The panelists shared their ideas of how to recruit, support and retain teachers in South Carolina. 

We'll continue the discussion on our next episode of Carolina Classrooms on February 28 on SCETV.

SCETV's In-Depth Look at the Folklore Surrounding "Alice" of the Hermitage

Alice's Grave Marker In All Saints Cemetery

More than 150 years ago, the legend of Alice Flagg of the Hermitage began. This young lady from the banks of the inlet in Georgetown County has touched the lives of many, including the Chandler boys – who grew up sleeping in Alice’s room. Variations to the history are plentiful, but there is evidence to prove…she did exist.

South Carolina author and ghost tour guide, Elizabeth Robertson Huntsinger, takes SCETV viewers on a journey to the 1840s for a love story; and brings the folklore alive through research-driven storytelling and beautiful imagery.
