Yes! TESCCC promised to remove the CSCOPE lessons by August, 2013. But, the TESCCC has promised to do lots of things and as yet few promises have been kept.
TESCCC is requesting that superintendents have teachers copy the CSCOPE lessons. These superintendents don’t have what it takes to Cowboy up and tell TESCCC to shove off. This is because these superintendents are pawns in the hands of TASA. They fall inline like rats following the pied piper. They bow down to the wishes of TASA, which has been to purchase CSCOPE so the Texas students would fail the STAAR. This gives TASA the leverage they need to further take over the Education of Texas Children. Read the TASA website if you doubt this. Even our past Commissioner of Education joined TASA’s transformation team before he resigned his position.
Its one thing to want the state tests to be more useful and not cause such emotional harm to children. But CSCOPE and those supporting it have been and still are part of an insidious plot to control how children think.
Do most teachers like CSCOPE? NO!
The reason teachers do not come forward and tell the truth about CSCOPE is described by the following teacher comments. If you are a teachers in a CSCOPE school, you can add your comments anonymously by sending them to:

I resigned my job because I was being treated so harshly (most had to do with CSCOPE, under the surface). In this district, CSCOPE has become more or less like a religion. Teachers are afraid to speak up for fear of being targeted, put on growth plans, get bad evaluations, treated like traitors… it’s a very long and very sad story. Parents need to know that teachers are very stressed.
