Together we can make a difference if we just show up! 

Your attendance is needed! Mark your calenders and be there. Our children and grandchildren are worth fighting for. 

Because your voices have been heard. 

~The Hearing~

 Senator Dan Patrick has announced that he plans to have a hearing on CSCOPE We have heard this hearing is scheduled for Jan. 31st in Austin. When this is posted on the Senate website we will be posting as confirmation. 

Sen. Patrick has requested that CSCOPE resolve two main issues.
1. Total transparency for parents to view the curriculum
2. Removing language that subjects teachers to possible criminal penalties if they violate the contracts they sign with CSCOPE.

~ The Argyle Community Meeting on the Education of our Children and Grandchildren ~

Because concerns over CSCOPE have been raised the Argyle Administration is being smart and pro-active. There has been a community information meeting called and your attendance is strongly encouraged. 

Argyle High School – Lecture Hall 

Wednesday Feb. 6th 

6:30 PM

As reported earlier 

We have started on our family’s journey into uncovering CSCOPE in our own back yard. I found out that our school district Argyle ISD now has CSCOPE, as do 80% of the schools in Texas, both public and private. You can find out HERE if your district is using CSCOPE as well. 

If you are unclear as to what CSCOPE, a Texas based technology curriculum is please listen to the WBTM Women On The Wall radio interview linked below:


 The issue of CSCOPE is very important and Donna Garner does an exceptional job of explaining the history of CSCOPE and why it is so important that we push back against CSCOPE. 


YIKES what is a Mom to do when a curriculum that was developed by some of the most far left progressives is being implemented in our Texas School District? This may give you a hint.

I went and spoke with our high school principal to see just how CSCOPE was being implemented. We have a great staff in our district so this was not a “got ya” meeting. I was told that CSCOPE is being used by teachers as a guide and time management technology tool so that students will be ready for testing. They have not used it or implemented any of the curriculum. As a Mom that was good news because from what I am finding in my research the curriculum is not one I would approve my children being taught. See Donna Garner’s analysis of Type 1 and Type 2 Education in Texas.

Next I met with the Superintendent of our district. I had an opportunity to learn more about why we are using CSCOPE. It was just put in place this year and I truly believe they did not know what was in the curriculum and who was behind it.

Once this information gets out to parents it won’t be long before many of us start showing up at the school board meetings demanding answers as to why a curriculum that has close ties to people like Linda Darling Hammond and Bill Ayers has been allowed into our conservative Texas district. To be clear I believe all of the administrators and school board members in our district did not know who was behind and leading the charge for CSCOPE and what is in the curriculum. They had been sold a time management technology system to help teachers prepare students for testing. They did not know about the progressive infiltration in the curriculum – the dark side of CSCOPE . It looks as though there is a very good reason that teachers are given a gag order when they begin teaching the curriculum.  

Our superintendent has contacted the CSCOPE representative who sold them the technology and has asked her to come to our information meeting to address the issues put forth about the dangerous curriculum in CSCOPE. I have invited our local elected officials, Sen. Jane Nelson, Representative Tan Parker and Representative Mira Crownover whose districts have children in our schools to join us. While they can not attend because they will be in Austin for the Legislative session we hope they will send a representative from their offices to attend our meeting so they can hear from the community they represent.

Our goal is to come up with solutions for our community to take on the issues in education that effect our children’s future. We must be knowledgeable about the consequences and effects of CSCOPE on the education of our children. Especially since Speaker Joe Straus is dangling a carrot of adding back 5 Billion in education. I say they don’t get another dime from our tax dollars until we know what our kids are learning in our public school.

There is good news today out of the Texas Legislature- Especially after this report: Texas Legislators ~ You have the power to make a difference to the Nation, Stop CSCOPE!

This is a great start. Thank you!! Texas Rep. James White has filed HB 704 in an effort to protect Texas from the Obama administration’s takeover of the public schools through Common Core Standards. Please express your appreciation to Rep. White for his efforts and then contact Texas Legislators and ask them to vote for HB 704.

Women On The Wall Radio ~ WBTM Guest Lisa Benson

Women On the Wall will be taking on this issue and sharing information and updates on our weekly radio show on Monday mornings at 10 am CST. You will not want to miss this show. We will have up to date information on CSCOPE  and guests who are the experts on education and other issues that are effecting our children and grandchildren.

Dr. Hartzler loves teaching and seeing students excitement when they realize their potential but due to the controlled teaching that Cscope demands Dr. Hartzler quit his job from Luling ISD over the Christmas Holidays. He would love to go back to teaching but not with Cscope in place.

Knowledge is Power and together we can make the difference!!
