By BRUCE SMITHAssociated Press

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Gov. Nikki Haley says her plan to improve public education in South Carolina will go to lawmakers in January.

The governor made the comment Monday while in Charleston. She has been traveling around the state pushing for passage of an ethics reform bill.

Haley said her next priority after that is education improvements that are part of a plan that she has been working on for a year. The governor said she has been discussing the topic with lawmakers, educators and others across South Carolina.

She says her proposal will not be a one-year silver bullet.

Instead, she says it will provide a blueprint for improving public education over the next eight to 10 years.
