- Discover STEM with Richland One
Transformation. It’s a concept that is being embraced by the teachers and students of Lower Richland High School. Through partnerships with EngenuitySC, MEBA, Best Carolina, and other entities, the school is implementing its DISCOVER STEM program. “The way we teach, here at Lower Richland, is changing” says Christy Jones, English teacher. When you walk in her classroom, you might think she and her students are completely disengaged from the lesson, with the teacher on the computer and all the students using their smart phones. In actuality, the students may be taking a quiz, completing a survey, doing research, or debating issues related to novels on educational social media sites such as Edmodo, or blogging on eChalk."
- SC’s public schools aren't failing. They're obsolete.
America’s education system is badly outdated and cannot produce the results our students deserve and their future employers need. South Carolina must radically change its PK-12 system to dramatically increase the number of students graduating ready for career and college without remediation and with globally recognized knowledge certifications.
