COLUMBIA, S.C. — 2019 was touted as the year for Education Reform. 

It seems lawmakers and educators are at an impasse with some school districts closing on May 1st for a 'Day of Reflection'. 

Some lawmakers including Gov. McMaster and State Superintendent of Education Molly Spearman are calling it a walkout and say it is sending the wrong message. 

To help us understand how we got here we invited Representative Jerry Govan (D), and Chris Wooten who sit on the Education Committee to join the conversation.
