    I am Melissa Melvin. I have written dozens of emails and made hundreds of phone calls to SC educrats who are only protecting the status quo. The top lobbyist for Dr. Rex makes SIX figures – I quit my six figure job to actually educate ONE child. THAT’S how important education is to ME. How important is it to Dr. Rex and those who “incessantly” resist the changes necessary to get SC out of the bottom of pile?
