The directors of the Texas Education Service Centers who created CSCOPE are jumping through hoops trying to salvage CSCOPE’s well deserved tainted image. The fact that you have individuals create a non profit within a state agency, fund it with tax dollars to create a product and in turn sell the product back to the tax payers is ludicrous if not illegal.
This week the director of ESC 12, Jerry Maze sent out the letter below stating that CSCOPE will now be referred to as TEKS RESOURCE SYSTEM. It has been said “you can run but you can’t hide & a “rose by any other name is still a rose”.. CSCOPE is still the implementation of a progressive ideology in our Texas schools, no matter what they call it. Nothing about CSCOPE has changed except for the fact that through grassroots involvement the Exemplar lessons are now (after revisions from exposure) have been put in the public domain. The governing board originally called Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative (TESCCC) is getting a face lift as well. Their new name is Texas Curriculum Management Program Cooperative.
