Urgent Action Needed in South Carolina School Choice Fight

State Representative Jenny Horne (R-94) is standing with the education establishment to block school choice.With all the evidence that South Carolina’s public school system is badly in need of reform, why is Rep. Jenny Horne standing in the way of school choice? Rather than support H.4894, a school choice bill that would benefit her constituents in Charleston and Dorchester counties, Rep. Horne is attempting to delay a vote on H.4894 in a blatant and cynical maneuver to kill this much-needed legislation.

Help Bring Charter Schools to Mississippi

According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, only 22% of Mississippi 4th graders are proficient in math and reading, and only 19% of 8th graders are proficient in those same subjects. These numbers demonstrate the abject failure of an entrenched education establishment, and that’s why FreedomWorks is helping Governor Bryant bring free-market solutions to the education system. The governor is committed to reform, but he needs our help to get it done.

Where Art Thou, Governor Corbett

What do Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, South Carolina Governor Nicki Haley, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, and Mississippi Governor Bryant all have in common?  The answer:  They are all in full support of statewide education reform. In fact, Governor Daniels has successfully passed reform legislation in Indiana.  Which brings me to wonder, where is Governor Tom Corbett of Pennsylvania?

FreedomWorks Stands With Governor Jindal

According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NEAP), which tracks the test scores of 4th through 8th graders across the country, Louisiana ranks 49th with only 18% of these students considered proficient in reading and math. This fact is particularly troubling since state and local governments spend nearly $12,000 per student per year on what can only be called a failed system.

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our 20,000 FreedomWorks members in South Carolina, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to cosponsor H. 4576. Introduced by Rep. Bedingfield (R-District 28), the bold legislation would usher in important school choice reforms for South Carolina and give parents greater choice in their child’s education.
