S.C. teachers ‘step out’ during statewide protest over budget

Many South Carolina teachers took a personal day Wednesday to take part in a virtual protest over the state’s budget.

“We’re hearing a lot from community members and from critics that teachers need to ‘Go back to the classroom and do their jobs.’ Well, what we’re asking today is that lawmakers do their job," McIntosh said. “Why is it that after months we still have no budget passed in this state? If teachers behaved the way lawmakers are right now, teachers would be failing.”
