COLUMBIA — The South Carolina House voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to advance legislation called a first step in overhauling South Carolina’s public education system, following a six-hour debate that resulted in no major changes but did add several teacher-friendly provisions.
The House’s 113-4 vote was met with a round of applause. A routine vote on Thursday will officially send the bill over to the Senate, where a panel that’s reviewing it section-by-section has already removed large chunks. The Senate is not expected to debate its version until April.
“It is time in South Carolina for a bold, transformative reform of our system,”
