Please vote for Sally Atwater in Tuesday’s Republican runoff for State superintendent of education. This is the time for us to put a stop to Common Core and put the local communities and parents in charge of our children's education.
We need S.C. standards for S.C. children. We also need our schools regulated so that our small children have more time for recess and relaxation. We need longer lunch periods so that our children do not have to gobble their food without chewing it. Parents need a say. There is more to life than test scores and prizes. There is something called mental health.
Vote on Tuesday and help us regain control of our schools.
