CCEG Chester Citizens for Ethical Government started this petition to South Carolina Department of Education

The Chester County School District Report Card shows well below average test scores, while showing an above average graduation rate, hinting at more of a paper mill than an adequate education as defined by the South Carolina State Constitution. Students are not properly prepared for higher education or the work force. The facilities are decades past usefulness, inadequate for future needs, some having rodent and bug infestations, many having security issues with an extremely large number of entrances and exits, and the school board's last two proposed bonds, both of which failed, did not adequately address real student educational needs or seem to take into account tax payer concerns. Even with a large amount of parent input the plans that were proposed did not seem to take into account parent concerns. We have a 21% illiteracy rate, an extremely high poverty rate, above that of many 3rd world countries in Chester County, with even higher rates within the City of Chester, and we need real progress without the dirty small town politics and underhanded dealings we've been witnessing. We need an appropriate outside agency to take over this school system and fix it.
