ALL4SC Director Testifies Before Legislative Committee
The Joint Citizens and Legislative Committee on Children heard testimony from ALL4SC’s founding director, Barnett Berry, on March 30. He presented ALL4SC’s progress on writing a policy brief on the current state of whole child education in South Carolina and outlined plans for a whole child education approach for all state students.
Berry explained to the committee members the whole child concept that includes more children are ready for school, more students healthy, more high school graduates ready for postsecondary and life success, and greater economic mobility for all.
The next steps in the process of completing this policy brief include aligning ALL4SC’s efforts to support work of the Joint Citizens and Legislative Committee on Children, designing incentives for cross-sector collaboration, and developing a whole child education and Zero-to-Workforce strategy for education from cradle to career.
