Fire Chad Connelly NOW!



The SC Department Of Revenue has responded to our monthly FOIA request and provided us with a copy of (not so) Exceptional SC’s bank statements …

WE WERE RIGHT …. as of June 30th, 2020, (not so) Exceptional SC has on hand:

Wells Fargo business checking account balance: $107,338.68 (less outstanding checks)👇

> Wells Fargo brokerage: $8.91👇

What does that mean for your family? With 2,500 students in the program … about $40 / child!!! And a big majority of you are expecting $5000 for the fall semester … starting in less than 30 days.

Yep, it is GETTING WORSE!!! More questions than answers …. look at the bank statement details. WHO is getting those BIG CHECKS?!?!?!?

EMBEZZLEMENT CONTINUES???: Remember, they only raised $64,627 in June … at 2% that is $1,293 in allowed expenses … yet they spent $3,768 on payroll for Becky. What about Chad & Dave Wilson … $$$.

People … when this all comes out … and it will … it is going to be HUGE!!! #FireChadConnelly … NOW!!!

H 3899 Bill Filed … a JOKE!!!



Well, the legislators leading this fiasco showed their agenda AGAIN last week … and it is NOT ABOUT KIDS!!!

What did they do???

They “rewarded” the (not so) Exceptional SC Board with a QUADRUPLED INCREASE in their Administrative Fees …

And worse … they are removing the LEGISLATIVE APPOINTMENT language so the BOARD WILL BE PERMANENT … and legislators will be able to say “there is nothing we can do”?!?!?!

It is getting to a BREAKING POINT … they are getting DESPERATE … and this bill is perfect evidence of that desperation!!!

And if you think that is all bad … this is a FIRST IN THE NATION …

… they want the SC Department of Education to “donate” $12 MILLION to (not so) Exceptional SC. SAY WHAT???

Read it … it is right there in the title of the bill (picture up top) … or read the bill here

Insanity!!!  Another square peg in a round hole. ANYTHING except what every other state does …


“Who” is behind it?

Rep. Jason Elliott (R – Greenville)

Rep. Shannon Erickson (R – Beaufort)

It is personal folks … and these legislators care more about their personal vendettas and their “monied” SPECIAL INTEREST supporters … than they do about YOUR KIDS!!!

Well, we are getting reports from parents and school officials that the checks that are going out are approximately 20% of tuition.

Why would (not so) Exceptional SC not tell parents how much specifically they were receiving … or even generally how much … we can only speculate … but we are hearing the amounts are approximately 20%.

The home stretch of the 2020-2021 school year is here … the promised funding is not … there is not even a plan in place on what to expect …. other than the pitiful 20% no communications whatsoever!!! Politics over children … AGAIN?

We offered a solution … to raise the full 2020 $12 million by 12/31 …. and next year’s $12 million in early January 2021.  That was $24 MILLION by 1/31/2021!!! Well … they knew better … NOT!

Yet YOU lost $7.5 MILLION in 2019 … $8 MILLION in 2020 … and with the current fundraising pace … YOU will lose even more in 2021.

$2,200 Raised in January – $70 MILLION in Georgia!!!



South Carolina Tax Credit Fail

This is insane … this is ridiculous.

Georgia INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS as a comparison raised $70 MILLION in just the first 8 days of January. $70 MILLION vs. $2,200!!!

And remember, we gave legislators a PLAN for $24 MILLION to be raised by 1/21/2021 … at no cost to the SC Budget. 

It was simple … and FREE … until Rep. Jason Elliott (R – Greenville) KILLED IT!!!

Rep. Elliott is in the bag for Palmetto Promise Institute, Jim DeMint (his former employer) … and the MONIED SPECIAL INTEREST like ClassWallet!!!

Your kids are suffering …. and Rep. Jason Elliott is one of the biggest problems!!!

And worse … he is our personal House Rep. here in Greenville District 22.  It is not pretty!!!
