One Texas school district, Lumberton ISD, has voted to continue to use CSCOPE curriculum despite the controversy and the fact that the state senate has required the CSCOPE lessons to be evaluated by the State Board of Education.
The group responsible for the CSCOPE curriculum is called, Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative, TESCCC. Lumberton has the following statement from TESCCC on their school website. One section states the following….
Does CSCOPE Promote slam?
There seems to be a contridiction between what the TESCCC says and what is really happening in CSCOPE directed classes. Note the picture of the girls in burqas. They are students in Lumberton’s CSCOPE World History Class. The faces of the students are blurred for their protection.
We can assume that since Cscope is based on Constuctivism and not Absolute Truth that that the teacher did not inform the students that the Qua’ran provides instructions for how women are to be beaten. Did the teacher show the class photos of women who have lost their eyes and have other physical deformities due to being beaten by men? See these on RedHotConservative. (Also notice how disrespectful the American and Texas flag are displayed).

Having students dress in the fashion of a Muslim country in the past would not have been the issue it is today. This is because students in Texas schools using CSCOPE, as in Lumberton ISD, are not given the truth about what it means to be a woman in Muslim countries. In fact, selected verses from the Qua’ran are read outloud in CSCOPE world history classes, verses that praise the god worshiped, called Allah. CSCOPE equates Allah with the God of the Jews and Christians.
