SCETV's Carolina Classrooms Provides Valuable Educational Resources To State
South Carolina ETV's (SCETV) Carolina Classrooms provides valuable resources for South Carolina's educators. The monthly public affairs program informs the local community about major issues and initiatives involving South Carolina's schools. Carolina Classrooms also features segments to showcase the work of teachers from the community. Previous topics on the show include statewide assessments, early literacy programs and new technologies in the classroom.
Carolina Classrooms was created by SCETV to highlight the positive aspects that were coming out of South Carolina's schools. SCETV President and CEO Linda O'Bryon stated, “Carolina Classrooms is important because it portrays positive images and good will about our state’s educational system. It helped bridge the post-election transition of state education leaders and has given the Superintendent of Education, legislators, teachers and administrators a public venue to discuss the public important topics pertaining to education.”
Carolina Classrooms is a crucial resource to facilitate discussion between parents, teachers and legislators. The program also works to feature issues immediately affecting South Carolina's education system.
Upcoming topics include a town hall meeting on funding inequities among districts, and a segment on college admissions and financial aid.
The program has worked in collaboration with many community partners, including local school districts, the South Carolina Department of Education, South Carolina State Museum and Riverbanks Zoo.
Carolina Classrooms airs the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
