FROM OUR TALES OF THE NAEP: Digest of last week's reports!

MONDAY, JANUARY 13, 2020

Already started, Rational Animal Tales:
All last week, we examined a set of claims about Mississippi's rising scores on the Naep.

How does our press corps cover public schools? The question leads directly to the set of reports we started this morning—to this week's Rational Animal Tales.

As of this morning, we've started down the road toward a great anthropological exegesis.

Before long, our rational animal tales will reach Lord Russell and the later Wittgenstein—fellows once found at the very top of the rational food chain.

Frankly, it's all anthropology now! With that basic point asserted again, last week's reports went like this:
Tuesday, January 7: Universally praised, almost never discussed! Plus, the allure of the gloom.

Wednesday, January 8: How hapless is our upper-end press? Mississippi (said to be) rising!

Thursday, January 9:
Is Mississippi actually rising? The ninth letter told the tale.

Friday, January 10: The problem, dear Brutus, lies in the gaps! The ways these stories get told.
We'll also recommend last Saturday's piece concerning one young person's remarkable life. It points to some factors which underlie those scores on the Naep and the Pisa.

As of this morning, we've started the lengthy discussion we'll headline as Rational Animal Tales.

We're starting with Aaron Sorkin this week. Can Russell's Paradox really be far behind?

  1. Exegesis is defined as the critical examination of text, especially scripture. That isn't what anthropologists do, past or future. Anthropology is "the study of human societies and cultures and their development." Text is part of culture but the focus of anthropologists is on humanity not scripture (the received word of God). Anthropologists study religions comparatively as examples of human culture, not as divine revelation and not as history.

    I don't believe Somerby is capable of taking an anthropological stance. Maybe he is complaining because anthropologists have done so. Hard to tell since he isn't clear about anything he says.

    Next week he is going to complain about MS and dirty immigrants who bring down NAEP scores without actually telling us why he keeps focusing on such trivial material so persistently.

    It isn't about journalism, plainly, and it isn't about education either. It isn't about racial injustice in schools and it isn't about philosophy -- he uses all of these things to batter liberals and advance conservative memes. If he were actually interested in any of the things he "touches on", his essays would be much different and certainly more interesting.

    1. Somerby is only interested in racial justice in schools in the sense that he defends those who perpetuate it, like DJT, Roy Moore et al.

    2. Silly, Roy Moore used the schools as a recruiting tool. He had his eye on a girl who wouldn't give him the time of day, so he went to her high school and called her out of class so he could ask her on a "date."

      But that's A-OK with Somerby, as long as she is barely legal that is. What's the fun of being an Asst. D.A. if you can't use your office to intimidate young women?

  2. “How does our press corps cover public schools?”

    Of course, Bob will tell us...only what he wants us to hear, while ignoring plenty of journalism that contradicts his pleasing tale.

    These things don’t belong together.

    Neither Sorkin’s version of To Kill A Mockingbird nor Russell’s Paradox show irrationality.

    Somerby just accused Sorkin of being a “woke” liberal because of his version of Harper Lee’s book. Is Bertrand Russell supposed to be “woke” too?

    The coupling of these two shows irrationality all right.

  8. From Palmer Report (but also reported all over the news), George Nader was sentenced yesterday. He is yet another sleazy Republican and Trump minion:

    "George Nader played a key role as an intermediary between the Donald Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 election cycle. For a period of time, Nader was cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But when it was all said and done, Nader was arrested for child pornography and transporting a minor for sex. Nader ended up pleading guilty to these particularly disgusting charges, and now he’s headed to prison for at least a decade."

    Perhaps Somerby will write an essay Tuesday about how he was railroaded and is just another misunderstood guy?
