Nikki Haley on Education


Make a real investment in our charter schools

Every child in South Carolina learns differently, some more so than others. It is our responsibility as the leadership of this state to embrace that reality, not fight it, and give all of our children the chance to learn, to grow, and to thrive. And so the time to make a real investment in our charter schools has come--and our budget does just that. Charters are innovators--we need those fresh insights and ideas to help us improve our educational system for all of South Carolina's children.

Educate kids not based on where they happen to live

Our children are our future workforce, our future business owners, and even our future governors. The quality we give them now is the quality they will return back to South Carolina, the quality that will define our state long after we're gone. [Let's] reform the Department of Education. We'll start with the funding formula. We need to educate our children not based on where they happen to be born and raised, but on the fact that they deserve a good, quality education, and they are our future workforce

Expand charter schools

South Carolina's 37 charter schools have successfully integrated themselves into local communities and successfully supplement current education options. While still public schools, these unique institutions have enough autonomy and flexibility to use innovative education techniques, provide outstanding education, and focus on specialized areas such as technology, math, and science.

The answers to expanding charter school use in South Carolina are similar to the ones for other public schools. These charter endeavors create totally new schools that have a modern mission and measureable goals in place before the first student walks through the door. This can mean fresh starts for thousands of South Carolina's students every year; this is not an opportunity we can let pass us by.
