Palmetto Promise Institute President to Lead Key Education Committee
PPI President Ellen Weaver to focus on student success, innovation, transparency and meaningful accountability as new chair of South Carolina's Education Oversight Committee

Palmetto Promise Institute Founding President and CEO Ellen Weaver has been elected chairwoman of the South Carolina Education Oversight Committee (EOC), an independent, nonpartisan committee dedicated to continuously improving South Carolina’s education system. She replaces Neil Robinson, a respected attorney, communitarian and the EOC's longest-serving member as chair.

Weaver was first appointed as a member of the EOC in 2018. She now serves as Senate Education Committee Chairman Greg Hembree’s business appointee.

“I am honored to follow Chairman Robinson's distinguished service on behalf of South Carolina's children, and share his commitment to advancing strong expectations to prepare our students for success,” said Weaver. “Our Southeastern neighbors are demonstrating that with high expectations and bold action, real progress is possible to close achievement gaps and elevate every student. I am confident that South Carolina students can achieve and compete with any students in the nation, if we as education leaders are brave enough to change.”

The EOC is an independent, nonpartisan group made up of 18 educators, business people, and elected officials who have been appointed by the legislature and governor. The role of the EOC is to enact the South Carolina Education Accountability Act of 1998 (PDF). The Act sets standards for improving the state's K-12 educational system.
