On this edition of South Carolina Lede, host Gavin Jackson speaks with Post and Courier Reporters Seanna Adcox and Thad Moore about the paper's new series "Minimally Adequate," which explores the bleak state of South Carolina's education system. The series analyzes how factors such as segregation, lowered standards, and funding cuts have resulted in a history of subpar education in the Palmetto State.

Then South Carolina Public Radio's own Statehouse Reporter Russ McKinney drops by to quiz Gavin about South Carolina history in this week's Did You Know segment.

Gavin Jackson graduated with a visual journalism degree from Kent State University in 2008 and has been in the news industry ever since. He has worked at newspapers in Ohio, Louisiana and most recently in South Carolina at the Florence Morning News and Charleston Post and Courier.
