A Corpus Christie mother is outraged after she found the quiz on “Remembering 9/11″ her 5th grade son was given. Apparently the quiz followed a video the students were shown in class. Take a look at a section of the quiz and see if you can spot which is disturbing:
That’s right folks. This is America, not a Muslim country where a question of this nature could be expected. To even suggest our country may have brought on or caused 9/11 is what we hear from conspiracy theorists, and certainly is NOT appropriate curriculum for ANY school, ANYWHERE.
But then this happened in Texas, the state where the controversial CSCOPE curriculum system is used and has come under fire recently. CSCOPE also asked students in the past to design a new “socialist flag” and taught the Boston Tea Party “was an act of terrorism.”
You get the picture and why so many parents are becoming outraged with the system.
The mother of the student who complained to her son’s principal about the test, Kara Sands, reports to the Texas media the principal told her the video was from Safari Montage and CSCOPE was using the company to supplement the curriculum. But then the public information officer for the Texas System of Education Service Centers, Mason Moses, stated to The Blaze CSCOPE is not affiliated with Safari Montage.
But the fact the quiz was given in Texas is still gives one reason to pause.
I’ve always advised people when you read a story, to always at least skim the comments. It’s amazing the juicy little tidbits of info you can find. Like the email address of the principal of Four Bluffs, the school where the “quiz” was given.
I’ve already done my duty, readers. You know what to do. The Blaze has a lot of information on CSCOPE. It’s well worth a read.
