SC lawmakers try to enforce state’s ‘founding documents’ law


By Taylor Smith | The Nerve

More than a year ago, The Nerve published a story about my discovery of a statute that requires public universities and colleges to teach all four-year students about the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Federalist Papers.

The Nerve shared with its readers my frustrations that after letters, phone calls and public questioning, administrators at the University of South Carolina and government officials ignored my sincere questions about the statute and the university’s failure to comply, acknowledged the statute and simply refused to follow the law, and claimed that I was misunderstanding the meaning of the law.

Read about that discovery here.

A year later, with the aid of another USC student, Jameson Broggi, change may be happening.
