Failings schools district

A proposal by S.C. Superintendent of Education Mick Zais to bundle failing public schools into a special statewide district deserves scrutiny. Some schools have remained on the list of under-performing institutions for years while leaders say they are trying to improve things but in actuality are producing little result. Zais says the purpose of a special district composed of such schools would be to implement new measures to make the schools more effective and accountable. Zais says similar programs in Tennessee and Louisiana have worked well.

Letter: Reader appreciates Tucker follow-up story

I applaud the Chronicle-Independent for front page coverage of the dropping of charges against Mr. Sammie Tucker. All too often, especially in larger media markets, good news is relegated to the back pages, while sensational news makes the front page. I believe our community newspaper makes a concerted effort to report the news as it happens and, more importantly, reports good news.
