South Carolina schools

South Carolina students can take online classes offered by the state.  But up until last month, there was a limit to the number.  A new law has lifted that cap, making it easier for students to take classes online that their schools don’t offer. 

South Carolina has long had a college loan forgiveness program to attract aspiring teachers to needy schools.  But most public schools in the state are now on that list.  Some state education officials want to tweak it and make sure the program is really directing teachers to the neediest schools.
