The SCEA is the union for educators in South Carolina. By banding together, our members impact meaningful change for educators and students.

Together, we have successfully raised educator wages, improved working conditions, supported student loan forgiveness, and made sure the voices of educators are actually heard. With more members like you, we can have an even stronger voice. Join us today.

A collective group like The SCEA is a proven, trusted network to support you in the ability to step out there and say “This has to change,” and you won’t be stepping out alone.
Quote by: Pete Stone, Teacher

Whether you’ve worked in education for one day or forty years, now is the time to band together and be heard anywhere decisions about education are made. Now is the time to join.

Together, we are united in providing a high-quality education, so that every student can attain their dreams. We all have a part to play in the movement, and we represent everyone in every role on the frontlines of public schools all across the state, from Chesterfield to Charleston, Oconee to Horry.

The result? A union as strong and diverse as its communities.

Join The SCEA!   Join The Student SCEA!
