14, 2013 -- A new study that lists South Carolina as having the nations
second-lowest high school graduation rate might just show you cant
judge a book by its cover, education experts suggest.
Some 61.5 percent
of South Carolinas high school students graduated in 2010 from high
school, according to the Diploma Counts 2013 study by Education Week magazine
based 2010 data. That rate that is lower than every state other than New
Mexico. The national rate, according to the report, is 74.7 percent. Over
the last 10 years, South Carolina has increased its graduation rate by
13.1 percent, compared to the national average increase of 7.9 percent,
according to the study.

14, 2013 -- Everybody who lives in South Carolina pays sales taxes. Everybody,
directly or indirectly, pays property taxes. But income taxes -- that
other sturdy leg of the states tax portfolio? Lots of people dont
pay income taxes.
Most of them dont
make enough money. Or they make enough to be able to figure a way around
it through the dozens of exemptions and tax credits that are available.
According to the
state Department of Revenue, some 884,516 individual income tax filers
-- some 43.1 percent of those who filed -- paid absolutely no state income
taxes in 2010. Another 39,230 filers paid $25 or less.
