PHASE TWO OF THE OPPOSITIONS PLAN – the SC Senate

Published

on

 Well, realize the opposition in the HOUSE wants to play the “good guys”.  See, we passed it 100 to 0.

But we know the ESA agenda … and even though the gutted the Amendment n the HOUSE … they double slammed it in the SC Senate.

Watch the 1 minute video yourself and see how quickly it was KILLED by a vote of 0 to 39 👇

KILLED 0 to 39

The whole manufactured debacle could not be more obvious.

Watch what they DO, not what they SAY!!!

HOPE FOR THE FUTURE??? ABSOLUTELY!!!  We are told some things are cooking to fix this in January … the way we it will really work … with INDEPENDENT NON-PROFITS.  We have a lot of work to do between now and then.  We are close … and EXPOSING people like Rep. Jason Elliott only helps.

So keep up the pressure.  Although it did not work this time … we know a lot more now than we did two weeks ago.

And we know better who is, and isn’t, on our side.

“A QUALITY EDUCATION IS THE CLOSEST THING TO MAGIC IN AMERICA” – Sen. Tim Scott

Published

on

Although the “paid” advocates government run school choice solutions here in South Carolina have been dealt a DEATH BLOW … the topic of “school choice” is alive and well … and we think 2021 will be the YEAR OF SCHOOL CHOICE!!!

IT IS ABOUT TIME …

Our very own Senator Tim Scott on August 25th, 2020 stated as part of his school choice fight that “a quality education is the closest thing to magic in America.” 

He is right …. and we love it!!!

The hot topic even came up this week in the Amy Coney Barrett U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings. 

Senator Ted Cruz (R – Texas) on October 14, 2020 stated as part of his school choice fight that he believes “School Choice is the CIVIL RIGHTS issue of the next century.”

That is pretty powerful!!!

And in really big news … love him or hate him … President Trump promised SCHOOL CHOICE for EVERY child in America on October 13th!!!

That is huge … and huge for kids!!!

SAFE Grants Ruled UNCONSTITUTIONAL – 5 to 0!!!

Published

on

We know some parents have been holding out hope that the “paid” advocates SAFE Grants (or better said #SafeGrantsNotSafe) might pull through with some aid … but in a UNANIMOUS 5 to 0 ruling …the SC Supreme Court found them UNCONSTITUTIONAL … It was BRUTAL!!! 

Both the liberal left and conservative right members of the Court ALL AGREED that the SAFE Grant / ESA model was UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

15,000 parents … the Governor … and a host of legislators were DUPED again by JIM DEMINT, ELLEN WEAVER, “DR.” ORAN SMITH … all with the failing PALMETTO PROMISE INSTITUTE.  Will legislators learn?

(For article click image above or HERE.)

And what did we hear from school leaders about SCISA / Dr. Spencer Jordan “push” Safe Grants?.  He almost GAURANTEED these #SafeGrantsNotSafe would be coming through.

Will Dr. Spencer Jordan apologize to all the families and schools suffering because of yet AGAIN another failure to lead?  Will he / SCISA make up the DIFFERENCE in cash???

#FollowTheMoney!!!

And, don’t forget their “allies” in the Governor’s Office … and how we got here in the first place.  Just over a year in the “job” and what Melanie Barton from the SC Education Oversight Committee could not destroy while she was at EOC … she has done from within the Governor’s Office.

Will anybody PAY THE PRICE???

The SC Department Of Revenue has responded to our monthly FOIA request with the fundraising update for the month of September.

Chad Connelly and Tom Persons may be gone … but the (not so) Exceptional Board still does nothing. $58,600 raised for September???

The bullies are gone … but only the sheep remain?  Geez, do something people!!!

Y’all know that we are personally on this 24/7.  Several court filings this past week … not to mention TWO new lawsuits this past month we still have not updated you on … but basically another week … same stuff.  Legislators still LYING to us all.  The (not so) Exceptional SC Board still remains silent.  DOR fundraising still sucks!!!  The “paid” advocates are still putting their interest before your kids. No changes.
