Event Summary

The Post and Courier recently published a groundbreaking investigative series, Minimally Adequate, spotlighting the disparities among South Carolina’s schools and persistent failures to improve students’ readiness for college and the workforce. Minimally Adequate: Fix South Carolina Schools takes the conversation statewide with community events in Charleston, Florence, Columbia and Greenville. 

Each event will explore South Carolina’s educational challenges in depth, bringing together lawmakers, educators, interest groups and business leaders to discuss the repercussions of minimally adequate education, especially the impact on the Palmetto State’s workforce. One in three South Carolina students graduating high school is unprepared for most jobs.

Award-winning reporters from The Post and Courier will moderate a panel of education advocates in each community including South Carolina Chamber of Commerce President Ted Pitts, Francis Marion University President Fred Carter, Public Education Partners President and CEO Ansel Sanders and many others. Panelists will provide insight from their individual sectors including business, education and advocacy.
