CSCOPE is not mandated for use in Texas classrooms. It is a curriculum developed by a school district in Texas and then sold to districts to use. In many districts it is optional for teachers to use. Districts that mandate that teachers use this curriculum are in violation of the Texas Education Code which says that no one can tell a teacher how they must teach the subject matter the State does lay out in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). TEKS tell teachers what they must teach, but the teacher is the one who decides how they are to be taught. I am an administrator in Texas.

Also a former army officer and you have my sympathies for living in California. I escaped in 1973, before it became the cesspool it is now. You could move. Texas is a great place to live.

Imagine browsing Facebook one day and discovered a photograph of your 14-year-old daughter wearing a burqa – at school.

That’s exactly what happened to a parent in Lumberton, Tex. She asked me not to disclose her identity because she fears for her daughter’s safety.

Her daughter’s world geography class was supposed to be learning about the continents. Instead, they were given a tutorial in Islam – complete with authentic Muslim garments. Some of the young ladies were photographed – and the image has now gone viral.

The students were told the purpose of the class was to change their perceptions of...
