To improve South Carolina schools, the General Assembly needs to make changes in laws. They have the power to improve student and teacher morale. They have the power to improve children’s behavior just by making their schedules livable.
They have the power to improve the children’s and teachers’ mental health just by writing laws that will bring health and happiness.
Call state senators Greg Hembree (803-212 6016) and Luke Rankin (803-212 6610) to implement these changes. They are on the Senate Education Committee. All new education laws have to be imitated there. Your children’s mental health and happiness lies in senators Hembree’s and Rankin’s hands.
1) Principals should not have to compete in order to be awarded needed monies.
2) No child should take the ACT without having had Algebra II.
3) Some kindergarteners need naps desperately.
4) Testing on standards should be reduced to 80 days of teaching the most basic skills.
5) All test scores should be correlated to the IQ of the child.
