"Corridor of Shame" to be screened at Coastal Carolina

"Corridor of Shame: The Neglect of South Carolina's rural schools" will be screened Monday, May 9 at 6:30 p.m. in the Wall Auditorium at Coastal Carolina University. The film is free and open to the public.

The 58-minute documentary examines the critical needs of South Carolina's rural school districts. The film closely tracks the lawsuit filed by eight rural public school districts against the State of South Carolina to win greater funding for an adequate education for their students. "Adequacy lawsuits" have been filed in numerous states over funding deficiencies in rural public schools.

Charles T. (Bud) Ferillo Jr. produced and directed the documentary. A Columbia public relations executive, Ferillo served as deputy lieutenant governor of South Carolina from 1982-1986 and chief of staff to the speaker of the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1974-1982. John S. Rainey was the executive producer.

The documentary will air on SC-ETV on Sunday, May 22 at 11:30 a.m. and Sunday, May 29 at 5 p.m. and is being screened on college and university campuses across the state.

"Corridor of Shame" was funded by many of the state's leading foundations and community leaders. It is introduced by author Pat Conroy and includes commentary by Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham and former S.C. Secretary of Commerce Charles Way.
