This South Carolina Education Bill Will Fail SC Children

elizabeth-ruff-studio-13

Join me at the SC State House Wednesday, April 25 at 10:00am and show your opposition to H. 4596, “Competency-based Schools.” We have a shot at killing this Bill, but we need as many people in attendance as possible to show our elected officials we do not want this in SC schools!
What is Competency-based Education (CBE)? Download Danger of CBE Flyer
Imagine 5th Grade students learning how to divide. Under CBE, each child logs in to a computer which guides them through (Common Core) concepts of division. The computer system regularly checks to see if the child has understood what has been “taught” by testing their competency. If an expectation is not met, a child must repeat the drill again and again until they meet the predetermined outcome. No need to prepare and no need to strive to do better; just do enough to get by and move on to the next standard.
Date: April 25th
Time: 10:00am
Location:
The Gressette Building (Senate Office Building)
1101 Pendleton St
