Event description

Description

Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education, TransformSC, the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, Lexington County School District One, and the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce for a day-long convening on how increasing South Carolina’s high school graduation rate can create jobs, increase consumer spending, and boost South Carolina’s economy. Join business leaders, educators, community members, education advocates, and others for a vigorous conversation on this “graduation effect.”

The event will provide new data linking improved educational outcomes to economic gains and showcase new ideas for ensuring that young people graduate from high school ready for a variety of post-secondary options.

The day will start at 8:00 am with registration and breakfast, the program will commence at 9:00 am, lunch will be served, and the event will finish at 1:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
