Collaborative Agenda for K-12 Education
On January 13, 2016, South Carolina ASCD sponsored our first Collaborative Day of Advocacy at the South Carolina Statehouse. In strong partnership and unity with seven South Carolina professional associations*, we were proud to roll-out the Collaborative Agenda for Pre-K - 12 Public Education, an exciting document of common goals for the children of South Carolina.
Following a breakfast in the Blatt Building on the Statehouse grounds, participants walked to the Capital for a press conference, culminating with participants meeting their legislators to present copies of the Agenda to them and to advocate for public education in South Carolina.
