ETV Community and State Partners
ETV Featured Partner: Education Oversight Committe and Education Insight
The South Carolina Education Oversight Committee (EOC) is an independent, non-partisan group made up of 18 educators, business persons, and elected leaders. Created in 1998, the committee is dedicated to reporting facts, measuring change, and promoting progress within South Carolina's education system.
Committee members annually make recommendations for the spending of Education Improvement Act (EIA) funds, which are generated by the penny sales tax.
"These public funds should be targeted to the needs of students," said Dennis Drew, chairman of the subcommittee that brought initial recommendations to the full committee. "The ultimate goal of the system is for all children to be college, career, and life ready, and these recommendations consider the long-term academic success of each child in the public school system."
"Our job is not done when a student receives a diploma and walks across the stage," added Drew. "We need to make certain that the K-12 system is providing students with what they need in order to be successful once they leave high school."
Literacy is one of the EOC’s priority education issues.
Education Insight: Literacy SC looks at what is being done to increase the literacy rate in South Carolina. The program interviews educators, parents and other members of the community to find out how partnerships among schools and communities are helping students read on grade level by the third grade and avoid the summer slide.
