South Carolina: The State and Its Educational System.
Hodgkinson, Harold L.
A demographic, economic, and educational profile of South Carolina is provided in this report. Findings indicate that the state is characterized by a sharp contrast between metropolitan development and rural poverty, advancement in educational improvement, and economic growth. The 1984 Educational Improvement Act was found to have made little impact on the core problems of rural poverty, at-risk children, a poorly educated adult population, and an inequitable job structure. Four tables, one figure, and five maps are included. (14 references) (LMI)
