Parents Beware of CSCOPE: Texas High School Teaching Students The US Is To Blame For 9/11

Texas Mom Angry About Terrorism Question On Son’s Test
Good for this mom for taking an interest in her child's schoolwork and paying attention to the content and not just the grade. I read through most of my sons tests and homework, thankfully he's still in elementary school, but we can't take it forgranted what they are teaching these days at any level. Some schools are pushing acceptance of homosexuality, gender disorders, pedophilia and other controversial social issues, including teaching about anal and oral sex to our kids by the time they enter kindergarten. However, this new controversial CSCOPE curriculum brings a whole new issue to the forefront by revising history and teaching our children misleading facts about Islam and the United States role in past events including September 11 and the Boston Tea Party, as described below.

"Texas mom Kara Sands is furious about a 9/11 terrorism question on her fifth grade son’s test. The question which provoked anger from the Corpus Christi mother appears to suggest America is partially to blame for the terrorist attacks on September 11.

The photo of her son’s test that was posted on Facebook has now gone viral. The test asking why the 9/11 attacks occurred was used at the Flour Bluff Intermediate School. The terrorism test material reportedly coincided with information in a video the class had watched."

The test question asked, “Why might the United States be a target for terrorism?” the correct answer read, “Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere.”
During an interview with local news outlets KRIS-TV, the furious Texas mom had this to say:
I’m not going to justify radical terrorists by saying we did anything to deserve that. Over 3,000 people died.
The controversial lesson on terrorism was part of the Safari Montage. The academic unit was also a part of the hotly debated CSCOPE curriculum system. The CSCOPE system was also at the center or controversy recently for referring to the Boston Tea Party as a terrorist act. Some parents also protested an assignment which instructed their children to design a flag for a “new socialist nation.”
Kara Sands called her son’s teacher and the building principal to schedule a meeting to voice her complaint about the 9/11 test. The Flour Bluff Intermediate School contacted Safari Montage about the instructional video.

Safari Montage readily admitted that the 9/11 terrorism lesson is a supplement from CSCOPE. Although representatives reportedly stand behind the video, the test which corresponds with the unit has supposedly been changed.

Sands was also upset that her son’s answer about a Bill of Rights question was marked wrong. The boy included food and medicine under the personal responsibility section of the test. To get the question correct, he would have had to list food and medicine as rights.

According to KrisTV, Flour Bluff officials say Sands is the only parent to complain about the test specifically, but her post on facebook now has 1,662 likes.

Several parents plan to meet next week and Sands says school board members Shirley Thornton and Wade Chapman have requested the concerns be brought up in the next school board meeting. The agenda for the March 28th meeting is not yet posted to confirm the item.

Sands says parents need to get involved.

"When I teach my children that you have to work hard and you have to earn a living and they go to school and learn something different I absolutely take issue with that," Sands said.
