S.C. politicians have sat on their hands for decades when it comes to education, how about we give our teachers one day?


South Carolina leaders have neglected a generation of our state's kids, but to Gov. Henry McMaster, it's the teachers' May 1 protest that apparently "sends the wrong message."

It's the same story every year. Reforms are floated, critics are placated, and teachers are tossed token thanks from their elected officials who go on to do little to help them.
