Legislative Action

The SCEA is the voice of public education at the State House. Voting trends in SC show that voters often leave political decisions to elected leaders. The SCEA encourages public school employees to be involved in the political decisions that impact public educators. The collective voices of educators are a powerful force that can improve education.

Annually, members of The SCEA meet in Columbia and make decisions that set our legislative priorities for the upcoming legislative session that begins in January. In addition to our legislative priorities, The SCEA monitors new bills that are introduced and works to either support or oppose them. While teachers are busy teaching, The SCEA is at the Statehouse, watching outĀ for our members.
