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:
