Iacovelli steps down from education panel
Greenville County businesswoman Karen Iacovelli has resigned from the Education Oversight Committee, the state’s school reform watchdog panel.
Iacovelli, appointed by Gov. Mark Sanford in September as his business-sector representative on the 17-member panel, stepped down for health reasons. She said she is receiving treatment for Lyme disease at the Jemsek Clinic near Charlotte.
Iacovelli is a vocal supporter of new biology teaching guidelines that encourage critical analysis of the theory of evolution. Critics say those guidelines would open the door to teaching religion in the classroom.
