A disappointing piece in today's Ft. Worth Star-Telegram uncritically regurgitates talking points from the so-called Texas Freedom Network; according to the Star Telegram:
“Sen. Patrick seems to think someone has appointed him Texas classroom czar, with the power to dictate to local teachers what they can and can’t do in their own classrooms,” said Kathy Miller, president of the Texas Freedom Network.Unfortunately, the Star-Telegram neglects to mention that grassroots pressure forced CSCOPE into the spotlight in November 2012, but Senator Patrick didn't get involved until January 2013.
Senator Patrick was reacting to a story that fell under the purview of his committee that had already been in the news for several months.
But, you know, other than that the story is accurate....
