State Education Commissioner Jim Rex sends this along to those who value education
in South Carolina. He is trying to get one million signatures on a petition to
amend the state constitution. Currently the constitution guarantees a “minimally
adequate education,” which helps explain why we are perennially 49th or 50th in
national pubic education standings. Rex and at least 50,000 others want to change
that to guarantee a “high quality education.” Here is your chance to say you support
quality education by signing the online petition.
Dear public education supporter:
The petition to support a constitutional amendment establishing “high quality
education” as our standard for public education instead of “a minimally adequate
education” has reached 50,000 signatures.
You can help us take that number to the next level on the way to 1,000,000
Please take a few moments right now to add one more person to our growing list
of supporters. Forward this email now to at least one other person, and ask
them to sign the petition today at www.goodbyeminimallyadequate.com !
Let’s say goodbye to minimally adequate education.
