The Final Countdown in South Carolina School Choice Fight
By David Spielman on May 24, 2012
With only seven days left in the legislative session South Carolina school choice hangs in the balance. For the past six months FreedomWorks activists and local groups have been working tirelessly to pass H.4894, a meaningful education reform bill that will help to improve South Carolina's failing schools.
After much hard work school choice passed the House of Representatives for the first time in South Carolina’s history, an historic and exciting day for children and parents alike. Despite this success the bill is currently being held hostage by a handful of state senators who are kowtowing to special interests and the education establishment.
These lawmakers need to hear from us!
Please call the following Senators and ask them to take a stand for kids and vote yes on H4894:
Larry Martin: (803) 212-6610, (864) 878-6105
Luke Rankin: (803) 212-6132, (843) 626-6269
Hugh Leatherman: (803) 212-6640, (843) 667-1152
Jake Knotts: (803) 212-6350
Wes Hayes: (803) 212-6410, (803) 328-8532
Please consider taking a trip to Columbia to visit these key senators in person and ask them to vote YES on this important bill. It's time they hear from us directly.
Allowing children the freedom to choose what school works best for them allows for more competition and more choice, exactly what a limited government solution is all about.
It is time will you stand and fight as we come down to the end, the final countdown?
