Recommendations to the South Carolina Education Oversight Committee - The South Carolina Education Oversight Committee commissioned a study team, composed of business leaders, school board members and educators, to examine local leadership quality and engagement in South Carolina.

Recommendations included updating state laws to accurately reflect the powers and duties of school boards, to require that school board members be elected and to provide school boards with fiscal autonomy.
