[QUOTE=Jetdawgg;4490409]Greenville is beautiful as is Charleston. They do have some good schools and you are correct to state that the state average is dragged down by the rural schools.
The issue is that there are a great deal of rural schools. Makes it hard to hire from the state. BMW has a good plant in Spartanburg and Greenville has Michelin.
I love SC though. The upstate and downstate rivalry is healthy[/QUOTE]
And Boeing thought enough to site a new 6000 worker plant in Charleston. Which will provide jobs for another 5000+. And Boeing just got an ok to build an adjacent huge plant. Seattle is taking a beating. No unions here in SC. GE has a new plant. Honda is here also. Dupont is new.
The better schools here in Charleston are good. One is a top 20 in the U.S.
The rural schools are NG. Schools in Jersey City, Paterson, Passaic, Camden, Newark and Asbury Park stink also. Education uis all about parents. Care or not.
SC has a ton of goood colleges. NY has Columbia and Cornell. NJ has Princeton. There are some good Catholic liberal arts schools in NY state. Fine if you're Catholic. PK would avoid.
