Back to School – Education Policy, State vs. Local

Start listening

It’s almost back to school time at Greenville County Schools, which is by far the largest school district in South Carolina, and one of the largest in the entire country, with 77,000 students, 6,000 teachers, and thousands of additional employees. Today, you’ll hear from Julie Horton, Director of Governmental Relations for Greenville County Schools, as she discusses the role of the South Carolina General Assembly, the State Superintendent of Education, and other policymakers shaping what happens in our classrooms. She shares how you can learn more and ensure your voice is heard when decisions are made. She’s interviewed by Catherine Schumacher, President and CEO of Public Education Partners.
