I'm leaning more towards to what the previous poster stated. Unfortunately, Charleston County Schools perform poorly on tests across the board. Strides are being made for sure, but there is more work to be done. I suppose the state funnels more money down here in hopes of improving the dire situation in our schools. On paper, the best schools here are East Cooper and there are some others scattered "making the grade" according to the standards set forth, but this is very debatable. Don't get me started on that topic. However, I wonder if this is historically true, that is, Charleston schools receiving more money than other major school districts?
