Our nation’s educators help children achieve academically and learn the skills they will need to be successful and productive citizens.

South Carolina’s educators not only help children read, write, and achieve academically, they teach them the skills they will need to be successful and productive citizens. The role of educators in our society could not be more crucial: Every American job, invention, and advancement is made possible by the work our nation's educators do.

When educators succeed, students succeed.

The SCEA supports educators by helping them advocate for safe working conditions, reasonable pay, professional development resources, and so much more. We help educators understand the unique challenges of today’s classrooms and develop groundbreaking solutions to strengthen public schools.
