Columbia, SC (WLTX) - School choice advocates came out Thursday to launch a new product they say will give parents more options on picking the best education option for their kids.
It's called Empowering Students: Education Options for South Carolina Families. It's a website and catalogue presenting the growing number of student-centered options for students in our state.
Educators say the site will also enable parents to tailor education needs to best suit their kids.
"I think it's important because we know that each student is an individual and they have individual learning styles and while traditional education works for the vast majority of our students, we don't have the luxury of leaving any student behind," said Ellen Weaver, the president of the Palmetto Policy Forum. "If we are going to be the most competitive, the most wonderful state in the nation to live in, we have to account for the education for each of our students."
