Education leaders give their schools good grades
Progress and positive thoughts were the order of the day Nov. 2 at a “State of Education” breakfast held in Hartsville.
The event, which featured leaders from the Darlington County School District, the Governor’s School for Science and Math, Florence-Darlington Technical College and Coker College, focused on the progress those schools are making.
For instance, Florence-Darlington TEC is focusing on its “core mission,” said Mark Roth, vice president of Manufacturing, Technology and Corporate and Workforce Development at the school. TEC is “alive and well,” he said. “ . . . We’re moving forward.”
One guest at the event, Darlington County Councilman Lewis Brown, said education is the basis for economic development, such as the kind now being seen in Hartsville. “You cannot overcome a weak education.”
