CSCOPE scrutiny prompts program’s defense, critics’ disparagement

Quote:
CSCOPE, the controversial curriculum used in more than 70% of Texas schools, continues attracting attention. After a contentious full-day hearing before the Texas Senate Committee on Education, Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston and education committee chair, in conjunction with CSCOPE officials announced “sweeping” changes for the program – some taking effect immediately with others requiring a more long-term approach. The changes to CSCOPE are underway and predictably, not all are pleased with efforts to bring transparency and accountability to this taxpayer-funded program.

The secretive nature of CSCOPE’s governing board, the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative (TESCCC), has been a common criticism. The TESCCC board comprises the 20 executive directors employed by Texas’ publicly-funded Education Service Centers (ESC). Nonetheless, access to this public entity’s meetings, even its meeting minutes, has been denied prompting a legal battle between the agency and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Lack of transparency, secretive education, you name it, shouldn't be the kind of education I will give to my kids.

To the members living in Texas: Are you aware of this program?
