Some surprises in rural S.C. education

A regular reader of these weekly columns recent noted that it seems like many of my columns are based on a review of a national study that looks at conditions in each of the 50 states about such things as health, education, job creation, etc. She is right, and there is a reason for this. Unfortunately, our state’s politics and general civic dialogue has become very ideological and divisive. Each side seems to have already decided their position on issues based on a rigid ideology or preconceived prejudice -- and the old saying, “I know what I think, don’t try and confuse me with the facts,” seems to apply double to South Carolina.
