Elizabeth Colbert-Busch on Education

 


Portfolio of public options: magnet, charter, Montessori

Education is not one size fits all. We must build a viable portfolio of options to successfully teach all of South Carolina's children. I want to expand school choice both by making sure every neighborhood school is a great school and giving states the option to use federal dollars to expand school choice through single gender schools, online learning, magnet, charter, Montessori, creative arts, and math and science schools. Families should have a variety of options available.

Quality public education is the key to our future

Access to public education has been a cornerstone of the American dream for more than a century. Education is an investment in our economic future. It's a simple truth that nations that out educate America now will out-compete us in the future.

I passionately believe that quality public education is the key to our future: It must be available to all of our children from pre-k to high school, technical school and beyond. For too long South Carolina's educational system has been lagging. We are home to some of the best public schools and some of the nation's poorest performing schools. We need to accelerate the academic progress of our students, extend options for early learning, provide resources and assistance to our low performing schools, and invest in getting great teachers in every classroom. We need a cradle to career educational strategy.
