South Carolina Education Funding: Big Dollars, Bad Outcomes

South Carolina taxpayers are spending more for poorer performance …

In our latest video clip, FITSNews founding editor Will Folks breaks down the latest disappointing South Carolina education data. Folks questions whether “massive, escalating investments in ‘public education’ are producing corresponding gains in academic achievement.”

Once again, in addition to watching our videos please respond to them … including sharing yours criticisms (constructive or otherwise) so that we can improve/ refine our clips.

“Don’t hold back … because the sharper your hot takes are, the better our takes are going to be in the future,” Folks noted last week. “And the better we do our job, the better off this state’s marketplace of ideas is going to be.”
