Education   arrow

SC Appleseed advocates  that all children must have full access to educational opportunities. This includes keeping all kids in school, out of jail and on track to become contributing members of society. To that end, SC Appleseed provides advocacy and works with parents to see that public school districts fulfill their legal obligations to all students, including those  with special needs. We believe that it is critical that schools work to fix students’ problems instead of exacerbating the problem for others later on. We do this by working with the community and educating parents and policymakers to ensure that every child reaches his or her full potential.

SC Appleseed added its voice in the efforts to change school funding by filing a “friend of the court” brief in support of South Carolina’s poorest schools fighting to get sufficient funding. We have also worked with the Southern Poverty Law Center in their “School to Prison Pipeline” project, which seeks to end the practice of driving students with special needs out of school and into the prison system.

As in every other area that SC Appleseed operates, we work to insure that children’s voices will be heard on the issues that most affect them.
