Upper SC bishop writes education op ed

The Rt. Rev. Andrew Waldo, bishop of Upper South Carolina, has penned an editorial expressing his, and several other bishops’, support for increased education funding in the state of South Carolina.

Bishop Waldo explores the various ways in which the Episcopal churches of his diocese are seeking to support the educational process through tutoring programs, food and school supplies programs and other means, including advocacy for more funding.


He also states:

Several years ago, Gov. Nikki Haley challenged the churches to be more involved in education. We are responding and are committed to building our members’ involvement over the long term. But we cannot pay for school buses that work, build and maintain adequate school buildings in all districts or pay competitive salaries for teachers and administrators.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
