At the time South Carolina voters are picking the state’s superintendent of education this November (2018), they will also determine if they should proceed to choose the state’s top education official.

Months ago, the Legislature legislated putting a constitutional amendment on the ballot that would alter the way the state’s school system is managed, making the superintendent of education elected by the governor, not chosen by voters.

The state’s constitutional ballot commission allowed the language for that question, which voters will respond to.

Voters will also determine if they would preferably have the governor select the school's superintendent, subject to requirements for the job to be established by the Legislature. That development would give the governor’s office more authority over education policy, and enable voters to directly judge the state’s chief executive based on how the state’s schools are operated.

Republicans regularly favor the idea. Yet, some Democrats reject it.

The move also would eliminate one of eight statewide constitutional officers that citizens now vote on every 4 years, decreasing a crowded ballot that now incorporates the state treasurer, comptroller general and commissioner of agriculture in it.

To sum this all up :

A ‘Yes’ vote will ask the superintendent of education be chosen by the governor with the approval of the Senate. A ‘No’ vote keeps the current method of naming a superintendent of education.
