Creating Political Goodwill To Solve Social And Educational Inequality In South Carolina

For a long time, the South Carolina’s conservative politics has not catered for issues around class welfare and racism. Most people haven’t seen changes made to the public schools and universities despite the promises made to work on the issues facing such institutions. In fact, the political class has not adequately addressed the challenges of the brown and black people who are underserved by the K-12 education.

The legal and political negligence not only affects the schooling system but it has also made its way into different sectors of South Carolina’s economy. In fact, the poverty has invaded the lower states apart from a few coastal regions which are regarded as a tourist destination center. What most people are unaware is that most of south Carolinas public schools are considered successes or failures depending on the community they serve.

The schools that serve black students are considered bad while those dominated by white communities are framed as good. The reason why such a stereotype has existed for a long time is as a result of the political lie that the government is committed to overcoming the negative impacts of social inequality such as classism and racism. It goes without saying that most of the white students are more likely to have quality education compared to their black counterparts who are subjected to the basic coerces and teachers who are aren’t qualified.

The education system is also profoundly flawed especially when it comes to the standardizing tests offered to students. Such tests pave the way for political negligence since they are gender, class, and race biased. For years, South Carolina has spent millions of tax dollars in creating standards for new tests and report cards, but this has continued to demonize the schools that serve poor brown/black children. To achieve equality and fairness in the education sector, South Carolina needs a political goodwill to attend to the scar of racism and poverty within the state.

South Carolina Defeats Florida International

The University of South Carolina men’s basketball team went on the road last night to face the Florida International Golden Panthers. The Gamecocks were heavy favorites entering the game, and they proved why by dominating every aspect of the game on the way to a 78-61 victory.

Despite having the superior talent, South Carolina struggled early in the game. Whether it was the extended break for the Thanksgiving holiday or playing in an almost empty stadium, something was clearly not right with the Gamecocks. The Golden Panthers led most of the first half, and they actually held an eight-point lead with only five minutes left to play. The Gamecocks finally woke up and used a late push to finish the first half with a slim 38-36 lead.

South Carolina was a completely different team in the second half. They played suffocating defense and near flawless offense throughout most of the half. This great play helped the Gamecocks extend their lead to 22 points in less than seven minutes. Florida International tried to fight back, but the talent disparity was just too much to overcome.

The Gamecocks can thank their starting lineup for the victory last night. Chris Silva led the way with 26 points and 10 rebounds. Everyone else in the starting lineup scored at least seven points. The excellent output from the starting lineup was greatly needed because the entire South Carolina bench only managed to score four points against the Golden Panthers.

The South Carolina Gamecocks now have a 5-1 record, and the team is probably more talented than they were last year. A repeat of last year’s Final Four appearance may be unrealistic, but South Carolina clearly has the talent to beat almost any team in the country this year. The Gamecocks’ next game will take place on Thursday, November 30, when they host the Temple Owls.

Foster Home Crisis Highlighted In South Carolina

A national survey has revealed a crisis across much of the U.S. in regard to the number of available foster beds available for children across South Carolina and much of the U.S. A study from North Charleston, South Carolina based group, the Jenkins Institute for Children has highlighted the growing problem and report an estimated 1,300 foster beds are needed to house all the children needing specialist care in the Palmetto State.

South Carolina now ranks the third worst state in the U.S. for the loss of foster care beds based on the falling number of available homes for children according to The Post & Courier. The Jenkins Institute for Children reports a fall of around 650 foster beds in South Carolina across the last year which has created a crisis among those involved in caring for children as a recent attempt to recruit new foster families has not appeared to have been a success.

The South Carolina Department of Social Services explained a number of issues could be to blame for the continuing fall in the number of available foster homes accepting children in 2017; one reason for a major fall could be the adoption of children arriving in homes initially to be fostered before being adopted by the family they were sent to.

Officials in South Carolina have already begun a recruitment drive across different areas of the state including TV spots, a 5K run, and newspaper adverts targeted at the city of Spartanburg. A similar campaign to raise awareness of the issue will begin in Charleston before the end of 2017 as the state hopes to build a new group of foster families supporting children in need. The latest issues facing South Carolina are being seen across much of the U.S. with 15 states not able to report the capacity for foster beds in their state.

Experts Find Ancient Roman Sarcophagus In Central London

A team of archeologists has just discovered an ancient Roman sarcophagus close to Borough Market in London.

Although archeologists don’t know the specifics surrounding this sarcophagus yet, they are almost certain it dates back some 1,600 years. They also believe this sarcophagus must have been made for a Roman nobleman or elite politician.

When the archeologists found this sarcophagus, they noticed that the lid was slightly open. This indicates that grave robbers probably pilfered this grave of its valuables in the 18th century.

Gillian King, the head archeologist on this project, said she was surprised to see such an elaborate sarcophagus in this area of the city. King did have suspicions, however, that there was an ancient Roman cemetery in this part of London.

When asked who she thought the person in the sarcophagus was, King said the owner was probably extremely rich and had a great deal of respect from the community. She also said she hopes the grave robbers left a few items of “small value” that might give researchers a better idea of who occupied this grave.

The group that carried out this archeological dig work for the Southwark Council. They are now in the process of transporting the sarcophagus to the Museum of London for further research.

Locals discovered an ancient Roman coffin by Swan Street about six months ago. This discovery caused Southwark Council to send out a team of archeologists to investigate the area.

Scientists at the Museum of London will first run tests on the bones and soil inside the grave. These tests will help researchers put a precise date on when this sarcophagus was constructed.

There’s no word yet on whether or not the general public will be able to see the sarcophagus at the museum. For now, the ancient Roman grave will be housed in the museum’s archive.

South Carolina Gamecocks Quarterback Sympthises With Geirgia Counterpart

During the 2016 college football season, South Carolina Gamecocks quarterback, Jake Bentley was thrown in at the deep end to manage an underperforming offense and prepare for a brighter 2017 season. Bentley has watched as his opponent this weekend, Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm has been thrust into the spotlight as a true freshman starting quarterback for the undefeated Georgia Bulldogs.

The State reports the Gamecocks sophomore quarterback has been gracious in the sympathy shown towards his opponent on Saturday as he sees Fromm dismissed as a less than impressive part of the Georgia offense. Fromm and his Georgia team have risen to the number two spot in the nation based on an impressive running game which has won games despite Fromm attempting the least amount of passes in the Southeastern Conference. Bentley explained he understands the frustration and unhappiness Fromm must feel as an unused part of the Georgia offense but also stated his belief the four-star recruit would be ready to take control of games if and when Georgia’s running backs stall.

After completing his high school education early, Jake Bentley found himself entering a changing Gamecocks offense as a true freshman under then first-year coach Will Muschamp. Bentley won praise from Muschamp for leading a team of new recruits during 2016 and directing the play of his teammates as a new system was introduced by the now second-year coach; Muschamp went on to explain his own thoughts of the enigma of Jake Fromm and the fact he completed only three of seven pass attempts in Georgia’s win over Florida. Coach Muschamp explained his theory of the success being enjoyed by Georgia is down to the fact the majority of the team have played together for at least two years and understand the running game better than the passing game Fromm would need to use.

Drought Conditions Continue In South Carolina

Droughts have become a regular part of everyday life for the people of South Carolina in recent years as long periods of rain have limited rainfall to drought-like levels.

South Carolina Candidate For Governor Promises An Ethical Tenure In Office

The role of Governor of South Carolina has been in a form of limbo since President Donald Trump appointed incumbent, Nikki Haley to the role of Ambassador to the United Nations. The promotion of Henry McMaster to Governor has left many waiting for the first test of his position when the Republican faces an election for the Governorship of a state which saw a large amount of economic growth under the leadership of Nikki Haley.

In the wake of a number of scandals hitting the South Carolina legislature over the role of lobbyists, Republican candidate Christine Templeton has revealed her plans for an ethical period in the State House if she wins the election to become Governor, US News reports.

Among the promises made by the former candidate for a top position with the U.S. Labor Department under President Donald Trump, Templeton has promised never to accept any salary for her role if she wins the position of Governor. Templeton has also included a promise to never accept any funding from lobbyists or to engage in any lobbying activities if she becomes Governor; the role of lobbyists has become a major cause for concern in the South Carolina legislature and prompted Catherine Templeton to state her own staff would be barred from engaging with lobbyists if she wins a role at the Governor’s Mansion in Columbia, South Carolina.

Some have begun to question the seemingly close political relationship Christine Templeton enjoys with former Trump Administration strategist Steve Bannon. Any backing by Bannon for Templeton could prove difficult for McMaster, a close associate of President Trump who was the first elected official to back his Presidency as candidates endorsed by Bannon have recently been performing well against those backed by the President.
