Policy and Advocacy in South Carolina


The panel of Literacy in the Disciplines 6-12’s newly formed committee on Policy and Advocacy addresses a number of key topics currently affecting education and educators in South Carolina. These topics include:

  • Policy within secondary schools; true history vs. the history that is presented
  • What is in and out of classroom libraries
  • Post-truth legislation, thinking, and the First Amendment
  • What considerations teacher prep needs to address for candidates given the current political and legislative environment

LiD6-12 is funded by the South Carolina Middle Grades Initiative.

Literacy in the Disciplines 6-12 (LiD6-12) was founded in 2019 to respond to an identified need within South Carolina to support all content area teachers in successfully and effectively implementing disciplinary literacy strategies. The Policy & Advocacy Committee emerged within a context of legislative attacks on public and higher education within the state and across the country. The desire for this committee is to examine how policy impacts literacy and educational practices, and how educators can participate in policy conversations and engage in advocacy for the profession.

This webinar will feature Brooke Hardin, USC Upstate, Tori Young, Anderson 5 School District, and W. Ian O’Byrne, College of Charleston.
