Letters: Education partners must work together to help schools meet needs of students


As a teacher and a May 1, 2019, marcher, I applaud Post and Courier reporters Jennifer Berry Hawes and Seanna Adcox for putting education advocacy on the Dec. 19 front page with “Going all in for education.”

I would argue, however, that the energy that “crackled from classrooms across South Carolina” has not sizzled out.

While the pitfalls of social media negativity may have cast shadows, they are relatively short compared to the thousands of teachers who have continued to nurture positive partnerships with parents, students, teachers, administrators and legislators.

Through partnerships with leaders such as state Sen. Greg Hembree and state Rep. Rita Allison, among others, we have seen the reinstatement of National Board certified teacher stipends, greater attention to mental health and increased pay.

While our energy had to be refocused on guiding students through the ongoing pandemic, we continue to advocate for more measures to help our schools best meet the needs of our students. These include:

These would allow schools to be healthy spaces of individualized learning as opposed to overcrowded spaces where students are reduced to test scores.

These are the first steps to improving education for students, and they will only materialize when all stakeholders work together.

We ask that our partners go all in with us as we continue to navigate pandemic teaching and ignite a new, durable, student-centered, solution-oriented advocacy movement.

An article in Thursday’s Post and Courier noted that The Dewberry Hotel has filed an appeal with the S.C. Supreme Court in its dispute with the city over its rooftop bar.

The argument being presented is that once a hotel is approved, the owner may add whatever accessory use he or she wants without any need to seek any further approvals.

Dewberry sees itself as somehow exempt from city oversight of any kind.

This is a very bad precedent for Charleston.

Why is it that when we read of those arrested and charged with crimes, especially if the offense is violent or involves a firearm, the suspects often seem to be out on bail for previous criminal acts?

Do outstanding charges or warrants mean nothing? Is someone’s criminal history meaningless?

Why are these people released to yet again prey on the most vulnerable and law abiding citizens of our city and state?

All citizens deserve to be treated fairly under the law, but those who abuse the law to the detriment of all of our residents should not be freed on low or no bail.

The public should not be subjected to abuse by those who consider themselves above and outside the prevailing laws.


I’m happy to see that U.S. Rep. Tom Rice now realizes he was wrong when he voted against the American people’s election results.

It’s important to learn from mistakes and admit when you’re wrong.


During the holiday season, we are all inundated with solicitations by mail from organizations we have no affiliation with.

What amazes and dismays me is the cost of these solicitations.

Every day, I receive envelopes filled with address labels, dream catchers, crossword puzzles and more.

Recently I received an 11-by-14 envelope that cost more than $3 to mail.

Even more astonishing is what was inside: a pair of colorful socks, a pair of gardening gloves, five greeting cards, a check for $1.50 and a deck of playing cards.

When I was an executive director of a not-for-profit, I knew that being a good steward meant spending no more than 10% for administration, including donor acquisition.

Getting these “gifts” is not an incentive for me to give, but a disincentive, when I know so much money is being used to acquire new donors.

Instead of spending the money on gifts, I want the money I give to be used for the mission.

I know I am not alone.

Can The Post and Courier possibly find words to describe a certain troubled attorney in Hampton County other than “disgraced attorney Alex Murdaugh”?

Those four words seem as inextricably bound together as “national champion Crimson Tide.”
