State Supt. hopeful Nelsen says education can't wait

Brent Nelsen, a Republican candidate for state Superintendent of Education, launched his “Act Now, Improve Education” drive today. Nelsen challenged all South Carolinian’s to get involved in education, and do it now.

“I’m calling on all South Carolinians to do one thing for one child in one school this year.  Large things, small things.  We need to get churches, civic groups, individuals all involved in schools, to make education the number one priority in South Carolina. We can’t wait for the economy to come back.  We can’t wait for test scores to improve.  We need to do it now.” 

Nelsen spoke to students at Langston Charter Middle School in Greenville and Woodland Heights Elementary in Spartanburg County.
