TO RECOGNIZE THE EFFORTS BEING MADE TO PROVIDE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE STUDENTS IN SOUTH CAROLINA'S PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM AND TO DECLARE TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1995, AS "CHILDREN FIRST DAY" IN THIS STATE.
Whereas, the Constitution of this State declares that it is the responsibility of the State to provide a system of free public schools; and
Whereas, over six hundred thousand students attend the public schools in South Carolina; and
Whereas, South Carolina's future could be irreparably harmed if today's students are not trained to compete in the changing, global economy of the twenty-first century; and
Whereas, South Carolina's education system is committed to reaching the National Education Goals by the year 2000. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, recognize the efforts being made to provide educational opportunities for the students in South Carolina's public school system and declare Tuesday, January 31, 1995, as "Children First Day" in this State.
