5.24.13 – From Ginger Russell
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I do not know what control this thing has over superintendents, but it’s a scary thing! Prior to the hiring of our supt., we had district curriculum consultants who with teachers’ assistance, developed curriculum calendars for all subjects. Our ELA scores were amazing!
And then the current supt rolls in. Cscope is the Bible, Cscope is the National Archives, Cscope is everything a teacher needs….if you listen to the supt. Countless meetings have been held with the assistant supt. to share concerns but to no avail.
I have gone from a teacher having the confidence that I could accomplish anything in the classroom to a teacher that hasn’t known which end is up. Metaphors are our mantra…a ship without a rudder, a kite without a string, a compass without a needle.
How sad that education in our district wears the mask of deceit. I just wish that sanity could return to our classrooms.
Thank you so much for your continued work in exposing Cscope for what it is. Isn’t it interesting that this conflict has never been experienced over a textbook adoption?
[Below is a link to a letter sent by Janice VanCleave to Dr. Duron, Deputy Commissioner for Finance and Administration at the Texas Education Agency. Janice is inquiring about the $100 Million in Rider 42 funds that were given to the Texas Education Service Centers to train teachers adequately on the new curriculum standards (TEKS). Instead, the ESC’s were so busy throwing all their efforts into their money-maker CSCOPE that they did a terrible job of providing teachers with the proper training. Janice wants to know what happened to all that $100 Million, and why it was not spent appropriately. — Donna Garner]
