CSCOPE: A Growing Educational, Financial, and Ideological Scandal

This afternoon, Cahnman's Musings received access to inside information on the CSCOPE programs in Texas Public Schools we've discussed previously.  While the source fears retribution and won't speak on the record, they did confirm what I'd already suspected about CSCOPE.  It's a mix of low standards, Marxist indoctrination, and serious financial irregularities.

Cahnman's Musings will continue to update as we learn more but, in the meantime, here are some sources of public information:
  • This Austin-based architecture firm, which specializes in school construction, helped underwrite The Public Education Visioning Institute listed above; without jumping the gun, it's worth noting that the word 'sustainability' appears multiple times on their website.
Based on the little we already know, the 83rd Texas Legislature has no business increasing public education spending by one red cent until we get to the bottom of this CSCOPE scandal.

Update: The Gonzales Cannon has more here.

Update II: The Wichita Falls Times Record News has more here, money quote: "Master teachers reported a dumbed down approach with a liberal, students teach students philosophy."

  2. The amount of money spent on public education by State governments has been increasing exponentially for the last 30 years, and yet despite this for the last 30 years the public education system in America has been declining in quality, failing our children.
