The important CSCOPE Accountability Bill, SB 1406, is currently sitting in the House Calendars Committee and must be voted out of the committee to go to the House floor for a vote. The bill has already received significant bipartisan support having passed the Texas Senate by a vote of 29-1.
SB 1406 would clamp down on CSCOPE by bringing the curriculum under the oversight of the elected State Board of Education. The curriculum has been exposed as an attempt to circumvent oversight and accountability and to indoctrinate Texas children with radical progressive views. Just a few shocking examples of the curriculum include: a downplaying of Christianity and promoting Islam, calling the Boston Tea Party a terrorist attack, and promoting communism by encouraging students to make a flag for a new communist nation. Further, taxpayers paid for the creation of CSCOPE. This gives the state of Texas a responsibility to take control of the content and to have continual oversight.
Please contact your representative to support SB 1406 and call members of theCalendars Committee and encourage them to quickly pass the bill out of committee.
