CSCOPE ~ Sen. Dan Patrick~ WomenOnTheWall.org and the 2nd Amendment
By Alice Linahan
Now is that a combination for trouble in the halls of the Texas Capital.
We have started on our family’s journey into uncovering CSCOPE in our own back yard. I found out that our school district now has CSCOPE. You can find out HERE if your district is using CSCOPE as well.
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 they are 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 in our district did not know who was behind and leading the charge for CSCOPE and what was in the curriculum. They had been sold a time management technology system to help teachers prepare students for the STAAR testing. They did not know about the progressive infiltration in the curriculum – the dark side of CSCOPE . There is a very good reason that Teachers are given a gag order when they begin teaching the curriculum.
Texas parents would not approve if they knew what was in the CSCOPE curriculum. Here are just a few examples.
The Boston Tea Party was a Terrorist Attack……according to CSCOPE Here is the actual lesson
“A source in the Texas education system has told WND that Common Core operatives in the U.S. Department of Education are actively pursuing CSCOPE as a way around the Texas legislative process.”
So what are our local parents going to be doing about this situation?
Because Senator Dan Patrick has announced that he plans to have a hearing on CSCOPE as one of his first education hearings and because he is meeting with CSCOPE representatives in preparation for that hearing we are preparing for that hearing as well.
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.
We will be hosting a CSCOPE information meeting. Our superintendent is contacting the CSCOPE representative who sold them the technology and will ask her to come to our information meeting to address the issues put forth about the dangerous curriculum in CSCOPE. Once we have confirmation of the date, time and location of this meeting I will be posting it. We will be inviting our local elected officials, Sen. Jane Nelson, Representative Tan Parker and Representative Mira Crownover whose districts have children in our schools to join us.
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.
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.
Here is what the experts are saying about CSCOPE ~
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!!
