The State reports that Darkness to Light and the South Carolina state Department of Education are teaming up to train school teachers to better identify child sex abuse.

There will be a formal announcement about the program this afternoon from South Carolina’s education superintendent Jim Rex, Charleston Mayor Joe Riley, and North Charleston Mayor Keither Summer.

The announcement comes on the heels of a study that ranks South Carolina children’s welfare 45th in the nation.
