Yancey McGill on Education
$11.7B on schools and we're ranked as the worst state
Tons of money is dumped into South Carolina's education system every year, and we are still ranked at or near the bottom, nationally. According to the US News and World Report's ranking of all 50 States, South Carolina is dead last in education.
This is despite spending $11.7 billion a year on government-run schools, which breaks down to $16,211 per student per year.
South Carolina is also known as the home of the "Corridor of Shame." This is unacceptable. Together, we will eliminate the
inefficiency and corruption rife within our education system and focus on preparing South Carolina's children for the challenges of the 21st century.
Here are some ways we will improve education in South Carolina:
