Fantastic Meeting With Berkeley County Educators

on Sat, 08/04/2012 - 00:10

When was the last time you came out of a meeting absolutely thrilled and looking forward to the next one?

I never thought I'd say this, but I just came from that meeting.

A group of Berkeley County educators led by Mev McInosh of Stand Up SC for Public Schools met at Evo's Pizza in North Charleston.  I'll admit, the food contributed to the excitement.

More importantly, this group came together, shared a vision of a coalition of educators and parents, and set up concrete action steps for the next two weeks. 

We sat down with a blank piece of paper and came up with opportunities to register voters, educate them on critical education issues, and enroll them in EdFIrstSC.

We identifed amazing resources and contacts we can use to accomplish these goals.  Every idea led to three others.  We ran out of pizza long before we ran out of ideas.

Over the next few months, I'll be working to put together a team like this in every county in South Carolina.  Not one of us had ever done this before, so you don't need any special experience. 

Please let me know at edfirstsc@gmail.com if this is something you'd like to be a part of.  I will do everything I can to support you.  Many hands make light work.

Thanks Mev!
