Congratulations to those community members from Edisto Island and Hollywood who made their desires known to Superintendent Nancy McGinley and the Charleston County School Board. Middle-school-age students will remain in their respective schools for the next school year.
These concerned taxpayers must know that the fight is not over and vigilance will be required. Will the time ever come when the superintendent stops thinking in the "Broad" urban mentality of one-size-fits-all? Probably not. Do not believe her weak protestations that she has no intention of closing rural high schools. It's only a matter of time until the next go-round of school "redesign."
No doubt McGinley will structure more "community" input with stacked committees in these communities in the future. Forewarned is forearmed!
