SCGOP Senator Speaks On Common Core … And “Gay Man Juice”

This website doesn’t believe the federal government should have any involvement whatsoever in education – a contention capably reinforced by the last five decades of academic achievement benchmarks.

We’re not alone in that belief, either …

“We have little to show for the $2 trillion in federal education spending of the past half century,” policy analyst Andrew J. Coulson of The Cato Institute said during Congressional testimony in 2011. “In the face of concerted and unflagging efforts by Congress and the states, public schooling has suffered a massive productivity collapse — it now costs three times as much to provide essentially the same education as we provided in 1970.”

And not only is it costing more … American students are falling further behind their global peers.

The latest top-down federal intrusion aimed at “fixing” the problems government has created?

Common core – an ostensibly “voluntary” and “state-driven” process of setting new academic benchmarks for America’s children that in reality is a massive federal overreach.

“The Common Core cheapens our children’s education and further erodes the nation’s tradition of Federalism,” columnist Hayden K. Smith wrote for Freedomworks, a national limited government group that’s opposing common core. “The argument here is not against educational standards being raised at public schools. The problem is loss of state control in making those standards.”

We agree …

Anyway … one South Carolina State Senator had a very interesting take on Common Core standards during a private meeting of the S.C. Senate Republican Caucus at the Westin Poinsett hotel in Greenville, S.C. this week.

In addressing his colleagues about the dangers of the program, S.C. Sen. Thomas Corbin told a story about a public school teacher in his hometown of Greenville, S.C. who shared some shocking information to her students.

“He said the teacher told her class about tribesmen in Africa who had to suck their elders’ dicks,” a source who attended the gathering told FITS.

Wait … what?

The source later corrected their geography and said the teacher was referring to tribes in Papau New Guinea – specifically the Sambia and Etoro – in which elders force younger men to fellate them and ingest their semen in an effort to enhance their virility.

Prior to telling the story, Corbin reportedly asked Katrina Shealy – the only female member of the S.C. Senate – if she would mind leaving the room. Shealy reportedly refused, telling her colleagues if they couldn’t say something in front of her “they probably shouldn’t be saying it period.”

Shealy declined to discuss the incident with FITS – citing the confidentiality of caucus retreats – however several sources who were at the event confirmed her comments.

“He was actually trying to be a gentleman about it,” the source said of Corbin. “He was uncomfortable about telling the story but wanted to make the point. He is a good guy – he was trying to tell the story delicately, there’s just not much of a delicate way to say that.”

Ya think?

FITS is endeavoring to determine what school – and which teacher – offered up this interesting cultural tidbit to her kids (and what grade level classroom she teaches).

Stay tuned …

For example, in the article you cite you talk about “absolute” scores on the PISA as if that means something. The scores are adjusted every year so the average is always 500! There’s no “absolute” number in what gets released. You are clueless on that. Also, you use the SAT scores as a way to measure the state’s progress without even mentioning how different states have totally different groups of students which change in different ways each year. You are clueless on that, too.
It’s OK to be clueless (the New York Times usually is on these topics)! Where you get in trouble is when you think you know something but you haven’t done the work to learn what you’re talking about.

It’s rare that I agree with Will on a lot about “educmicashun” but I have to side with him here C-Dawg. When I’m not playing Army, I spend a lot of time in High
Schools all over the state; I ain’t seeing a whole lot of advancement going on.
Our gifted and talented programs are extraordinary but anything below a CP
course looks more like middle school than high school.

C-dawg November 11, 2013 at 1:51 pm

Spending time in the schools is an excellent thing to do, but it doesn’t replace careful analysis of how kids are really doing. Those analyses say that American students are really improving. Look at how much the NAEP scores for various groups of kids have increased in the last twenty years.

What a fairy tale. Everyone in South Carolina knows for a fact that in Greenville, SC female teachers, as well as all females in Greenville County, never use the term “suck” or the term “dicks”

Now if the Senator had said the teacher told her students about individuals evacuating their elders’ mayo shooting hotdog gun the story would be believable

Suck dicks, my, my, my – how gauche

Only the white trash who live in the Midlands and Lowcountry use such terms as suck and dicks

What do you mean when you say “inflation tied to the oil crisis”?

Are you saying that inflation was caused by the oil crisis?

Reply
Jonathan DeBusk February 13, 2015 at 10:23 am

It’s not true. Inflation jumped from below 2% in 65/66 to over 6% by 1970. It had a sharp decline in the early 70s, but then it started to take off again in late 72/early 73. The oil crisis did not begin until October 73, so how could it have caused large inflation in the late 60s and the earlier year? The answer is that it didn’t. The inflation we saw starting in 72 was caused by federal monetary policy, collectively called “Nixon Shock.” Though it wasn’t all bad–for example ceasing convertibility of the dollar into gold had short term negative consequences but allowed for much more robust long term growth as our economic value far outstripped the ability to acquire gold to back currency.

Reply
XLJX February 16, 2015 at 7:19 pm

Some would argue that this inflation was the result of funding the ever more expensive Vietnam debacle without raising taxes or unduly worrying the American people about the true scope of the long military disaster in Vietnam, the bill for which they (we) were gradually being made co-signers.
