EOC report says SC schools still aren't improving fast enough to prepare students for success


COLUMBIA, South Carolina — An annual report by the Education Oversight Committee shows that South Carolina schools are still not improving fast enough to prepare students to be successful for the global economy.

The report released Tuesday says improvements in reading, on-time graduation and success beyond high school lag behind the committee's 2020 goals.

The unsurprising report looks similar to previous reports. Its release was followed by a screening of the documentary "When the Bough Breaks." It features education initiatives that help at-risk children under 4 years old become successful students.

The EOC was created by the state's 1998 education accountability law. Its 18 members are responsible for evaluating the state's progress toward meeting education goals and issuing state report cards for schools and districts.
