Straight Talk SC: Education for Life - Working Together to Fulfill the Promise of Education (Pt 1)

Jul 18, 2016

  This three part series, sponsored by Furman's Riley Institute and the University's Osher Lifelong Learning Center, examined what matters most in early childhood development and what interventions and supports are in place here in South Carolina. The series looked at the ways in which educational institutions, parents, students, non-profits, and members of the community work together to build up our schools and prepare young people to be successful adults who are contributing members of society. Programs illustrated the challenges and opportunities for South Carolina as we look at the future of our increasingly diverse society. This first program in the series, entitled Parents and Communities Fostering Lifelong Learners, featured Dr. Sara Ryder, Pediatrician and Clinical Assistant Professor at the USC School of Medicine in Greenville, Susan Alford, State Director, DSS, and Dan Wuori, Deputy Director of SC First Steps.
