Government Demands ALL Scholarship Funds Returned!!!

Published

on

A Maryland 100% government run “Voucher” program started in 2016 has demanded the return of $100,000 in scholarship funds (all funds since the beginning of the program in 2016) from a particular Christian school because … basically … the government officials don’t like the school.

The article demonstrates what we have been saying will happen under 100% government control and administration of a private school choice program. 

(Click image above or HERE)

Technically they are saying the Christian school needs to add an anti-discrimination clause regarding sexual orientation … but other schools without the anti-discrimination clause are not being punished … so it appears to be more “targeting” of a specific school or administration.

That would never happen in SC would it?  We think it already is … but that is a longer discussion.

Anyhow, maybe you agree that XYZ school should not get scholarship funds for whatever reason … but just realize … one day … YOU & YOUR SCHOOL WILL BE “TARGETED” TOO.  Maybe it will be your Christian beliefs, or maybe because you are a Muslim school, or maybe it is because your school leader “speaks up” too much or angered the wrong politician … or the government officials don’t like the curriculum you are teaching … or you don’t use the particular “test” they want you to use … or whatever the reason … know that they will find a reason to “target” your school too … eventually!!!

Why do you think some school leaders today are so “quiet” when it comes to the blatant failings of (not so) Exceptional SC???  They don’t want to be “targeted” as some schools and parents have already been.  Read more here:  Racism? Favoritism? Or BOTH??

Hey, we don’t blame the school leaders or parents that remain silent … but trust that eventually … the government officials are going to come after YOU TOO!!!

Only $165,579 raised in September

Published

Friends, it is not really getting any better is it? 

Our personal SC State Representative, Jason Elliott (R – Greenville) … not someone we like anymore as he has lied to us for years now and is working with his PAID ADVOCATE “masters” at Palmetto Promise Institute (Jim DeMint, Ellen Weaver & “Dr.” Oran Smith) … promised that his bill H 3899 that became law on May 17th, 2021 would fix everything. 

IT HAS NOT!!! 

On September 14th, 2021, (not so) Exceptional SC announced that there would be NO FALL SCHOLARSHIPS.  Why?  Because they don’t have the money because Rep. Jason Elliott’s H 3899 was a LIE and a COMPLETE FAILURE!!!

#FollowTheMoney!!!!

We dug the top picture up from the archives … what Jason told us a while back.  The schools are satisfied???  #Really???  He doesn’t respond anymore … curious why?  Sad …

And this from last summer / fall.  Remember Jason & Palmetto Promise Institute‘s other bright idea.  A lawsuit was filed the day after their idea was announced … and the trial court IMMEDIATELY SHUT IT DOWN!!!

And a few months  later in October the SC SUPREME COURT ruled their MONIED SPECIAL INTEREST plan UNCONSITUTIONAL!!!

But guess what … in September 2021 … they have figured it out now???  Back pushing the same MONIED SPECIAL INTEREST PLAN!!!  Anybody buying this???

Shame on YOU Rep. Jason Elliott!!!

No surprise … but last week (not so) Exceptional SC confirmed NO FALL SCHOLARSHIPS!!!

We (and y’all) knew this because we have been tracking their bank balances … but they finally admitted it this week.  See their full email update below.

And yes, this is their FIRST email / parents update since May 27th … nearly 4 months.  Why are parents and school officials being kept in the dark??? 

#FireExceptionalSC!!!

Sorry folks, as predicted, nothing is changing!

INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS … just like in every other state in the nation … is the only thing that will fix this debacle.

SLED UPDATE – Chad Connelly Embezzlement Matter

Published

on

Back in March, the South Carolina Attorney General’s Office issued a FORMAL referral to SLED (State Law Enforcement Division) to investigate the Chad Connelly “Embezzlement Matter”.  

This is a known and disclosed fact … yet Chad Connelly has been running around South Carolina telling folks there is no SLED investigation.  Wow, this is sad. 

Well, last week we sent letters inquiring into the status of the investigation.  It has been four months, so maybe they had an update.

Well, we received a reply … and apparently the investigation is still ongoing. 

This is going to be BIG friends.  We don’t think this one can be swept under the rug.  We are told that South Carolina law enforcement knows they have to do something and they know people are watching.  South Carolina is known for it’s PUBLIC CORRUPTION

What has gone on with our school choice program is in our opinion PUBLIC CORRUPTION at its worst!!!

“SLED or any other agency”???OR ANY OTHER AGENCY???  Who else may be looking into Chad Connelly and this embezzlement matter???  Maybe just standard lawyer language … or was this a clue that other law enforcement agencies are looking into this matter.

This is a highly political matter.  Chad Connelly is friends with A LOT of political figures.  But even though some folks have tried to cover up for Chad … there are people trying to expose this matter for us, for you, and most importantly for your K-12 children.  

Stay tuned … and KEEP PUSHING!!!  Expose them all!!!
