WHAT IS CSCOPE? YOU NEED TO KNOW….
CSCOPE is a progressive online curriculum being used in about 80% of all Texas Schools (which includes Pine Tree, Longview, Spring Hill and many other local districts). AND the State Board of Education has no control of the content of this material being taught to our school children!
Some examples of what CSCOPE is teaching our children:
An Advanced Placement World Geography teacher at Lumberton ISD encouraged students to dress in Islamic clothing and also instructed them to refer to the 9-11 hijackers not as terrorists – but as “freedom fighters,” according to students who were in the class.
Corpus Christi, Texas
– Question on 5th Grade Quiz entitled “Remembering September 11”:
- “Why might the United States be a target for terrorism?”
- CORRECT ANSWER (according to CSCOPE): “Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere.”
– One worksheet on the Bill of Rights names food and medicine as rights, not personal responsibility.

If CSCOPE based their curriculum on the APPROVED textbooks from the Texas State Board of Education we would not have this problem. CSCOPE has a one-sided agenda that is being used to shape the minds of our school children.
Our TAX DOLLARS are being used to fund this program. “Elected” School Board Members
are responsible for CSCOPE in our classrooms.
The education of our Children and Grandchildren is what will
shape the future of this Country!
