Education, in Beaufort, is deemed as too important to be the sole responsibility of schools. School discipline is instilled in the students and its success depends upon the collaborative effort of home, school, and community. In other words, there must be support from everyone in order for the school district to succeed. Working together would allow everyone to achieve the most important goal: schools that are safe and orderly as well as providing quality education.
