I wanted to extend my gratitude for your effort to help South Carolina students through providing financial reimbursement for private school tuition. We are currently living in a county, which as you might know, has for years rated in the bottom percent of performing schools in South Carolina. Our only option for our 12th grade son is the local private school or paying an out of district fee for him to go to school in another district. We are paying regardless of what decision we choose. This should be unacceptable to any student in South Carolina. We were delighted that we would for the first time have the possibility of choice for our child. I sincerely hope that your desire to help numerous citizens like us through school choice will be able to continue.
