That is the story here in Horry County, according to the latest info released by Horry County Schools this week. They were anticipating an increase of around 600 students. That number so far this year is nearly 1,200 new students! Although we all are pleased to hear that there are more kids in our schools this year that we were counting on, we are running out of room to teach them. So, to build or not to build, that is the question. In my opinion, we must do everything we can to accomodate kids who want, and need, an education. Enough said.
