One of the local Rotary clubs got a visit this week from South Carolina's top education official.
Dr. Jim Rex, the state's superintendent of education, was Lancaster Rotary's guest speaker at its weekly lunch club meeting, held Thursday at the Lancaster Golf Club's Fairway Room.
Rex, who has been in office over a year now, revisited his five key areas for reform in South Carolina public education, which are:
- Greater demand and support for innovation
- More choice
- A new accountability system
