Passes bills to allow students to attend any public school in the state and implement a competency based education program 

COLUMBIA, SC — Americans for Prosperity – South Carolina (AFP-SC) today praised the State House for passing legislation giving students and families more flexibility over their education.

HB 3843 would create an open enrollment system, allowing families to choose any public school in the state, regardless of their address. HB 3295 would implement a competency based education program, allowing for personalized education.

AFP-SC State Director Candace Carroll released the following statement:

“Parents across South Carolina and the country are demanding more of a say in their child’s education. These reforms will help families choose an educational option that makes the most sense for their children and help students reach their full potential. I commend the House for approving legislation that will put South Carolina students first, and urge the Senate to move the bills quickly as well.”
