This bill is a proposal to amend the South Carolina Constitution to require the state to provide a “high quality” education through the public school system. This education system would have to allow each student “to reach his highest potential.” This amendment would impose a vague standard for education subject to multiple interpretations about what is a “high quality education.” Further, it would be impossible to determine whether the system allowed each child to reach his highest potential. This amendment would likely result in inordinate amounts of money allocated to the public school system.
