(The Center Square) – South Carolina’s 79 public school districts have received, or anticipate collecting soon, a combined $2.94 billion in federal pandemic assistance with local school boards accorded wide discretion in how to spend the “unprecedented” plug of one-time money.
State legislators have little authority to intervene in how boards spend the direct allocations to districts, nor can the federal money – three times what South Carolina schools collectively received the previous year – be used to supplant state education funding.
The South Carolina Department of Education (DOE) has requested districts submit plans on how they will spend the money, to ensure the allocations are legal, with emphasis on academic recovery for students that fell behind because of the pandemic’s disruption.
At least 20% of the federal relief money must be funneled into programs to help students catch-up academically. Only 30% of the state’s third-through-eighth graders are projected to meet grade-level […]

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
