Last week, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster announced that all public schools in the state were encouraged to reopen for in-person instruction following the Labor Day holiday. While this was not a mandate from the governor, his remarks did send a clear message.
“We must give parents the choice in how they want their children educated,” McMaster said in a press conference. “Whether that is sending them back to school for in-person learning, or keeping them home for virtual learning, they should be able to make that choice with confidence.”
