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.

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. We found out that our school district Argyle ISD now has CSCOPE, as do 80% of the schools in Texas, both public and private.
If you are unclear as to what CSCOPE, the Texas technology based curriculum is please listen to the WBTM Women On The Wall radio interview linked below:
WOMEN ON THE WALL RADIO TAKES ON CSCOPE WITH EDUCATION EXPERT DONNA GARNER.
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.

If you don’t live in Argyle you can find out HERE if your district is using CSCOPE!

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 it.

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 or implemented any of the curriculum technology. As a Mom that was good news because from what I am finding in my research the curriculum is not one I would approve of 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.
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
Here is an interesting development, the Obama administration wants to buy CSCOPE.  From the look of things Obama sees a backdoor way into indoctrination for students across America.
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.
