Transparency and accountability are important in making decisions at the school, district and system level that benefit all students and communities.

Why Education?

Want your kids to support themselves? Help create and sustain a safe community and a thriving economy? Support you? Then you’d better care about your schools, because that’s where it all begins. No institution in our society matters more.

Richard Riley, former SC Governor, 1979-1987, US Secretary of Education, 1993-2001
