“Join us beginning at the State Department of Education as we march for our students, our schools, our communities and our state! Those that care about public education in South Carolina demand better teacher pay, smaller class size, removing other duties as assigned from teacher contracts, less testing and a pledge from our legislature that they will say no to for-profit charter schools and educational savings accounts. The 4% raise is a positive step forward, but it’s just one step. Join us as we march for the future.

Schedule of Events:

9:00 – 9:45: Register & rally at the Department of Education (1429 Senate Street, Columbia, SC 29201)
9:45 – 10:30 March to and around State House

10:30-12:00 – Guest speakers including Lisa Ellis, Bakari Sellers, Louise Brown, Reilly Arford, Beatrice King, Sariah McCall, Representative Russell Ott, Michael Burgess, Representative Ivory Thigpen, Otiana Thompson, and Senator Mike Fanning.

12:00 – 2:30: Line Gervais Street to rally for education”
