S.C. House Rep. Wendy Brawley to hold community meeting Wednesday night at Cherryvale Elementary School

Posted

S.C. House Rep. Wendy Brawley, D-Hopkins, is holding a community meeting tonight in Sumter on the state's current education reform bill.

Individuals distributed a flyer for the meeting on Monday at Sumter school board's meeting.

As state lawmakers are trying to reshape the future of the state's education system, Brawley is inviting community input on the bill, which could impact the state's K-12 system.

The proposal seeks to overhaul South Carolina's public education system and turn around underperforming schools and historically failing school districts.

Brawley told The State newspaper earlier this week that the bill "is on the fast track," and she is asking parents and teachers to help vet the House education proposal, an effort, she said, to help spur possible amendments to the bill.

Tonight's meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. at Cherryvale Elementary School, 1420 Furman Drive.
