Our children deserve more than a minimally adequate education.

The children of South Carolina need more than a minimally adequate education – but as
low and uninspiring as that standard is, our Supreme Court has ruled that we are not
even accomplishing that. We need to reform our public education system so that it is not
failing our children. James Smith has a plan to do just that.


South Carolina ranks among the lowest states in teacher pay - behind Iowa, Nebraska,
and even Louisiana. To attract great teachers to South Carolina, we need a plan that
delivers resources to our teachers and classrooms while reducing administrative costs.

Our schools can be far more than minimally adequate. Add your name: We need
great schools in South Carolina.
