TEXAS LESSON PLAN INSTRUCTS STUDENTS TO DESIGN FLAGS FOR A ‘NEW SOCIALIST NATION’

According to the website txcscopereview.com, a lesson plan for 6th graders in government schools reads as follows:Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?

(The Blaze) -A curriculum system used across the state of Texas reportedly includes a lesson plan for 6th graders instructing students to create a flag for a “new socialist nation” using “symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism.” The following was taken from the CSCOPE curriculum lesson plan: “Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?

Upon discovering the controversial material, members of the Texas Senate Education Committee grilled the creators of the CSCOPE curriculum system in a hearing on Thursday.

Several witnesses testified before the committee and accused the program of promoting far-left, anti-Christian values whileCapture others called the program openly socialist, the Star-Telegram reports. Other critics said it is difficult for non-teachers to review the program.

“Discontent is rampant across the state,” said Peggy Venable, the Texas director of Americans for Prosperity.

Wade Lebay, director of state CSCOPE at the Region 13 Education Service Center in Austin, defended the program and its content.

“It’s built by teachers, designed by teachers and that’s what’s powerful about CSCOPE,” Lebay said.

In regards to the assignment asking students to create a flag for a new socialist nation, first-term Sen. Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood) asked whether the assignment makes it appear that “we’re sympathizing with those types of countries.”

    I guess now we are going to have to find a way to monitor our teachers and their curriculum. Well, I think I can be a substitute teacher if I have to, but, I don’t think it will come to that. I have additional products to my Ebay store and have just put in a nice order – for this Country’s Black people. We got to get this Country back together. After communicating with Colonel West – he presented me with a potential problem with our young Black men. I don’t know what else I can do other than to make some of my products specifically designed for people of color. I thought about you as you maybe can tell me what to buy, but then I discovered Dr. Maya Angelou and some other things – kind of lost on the hair balm thing though – too many choices. I learn a lot selling stuff – that is for sure. People spend a lot of money on their hair – LOL. I got 2 good pieces of news today. Somebody from Fox wrote that he thought Christianity was on the rise – that is good news, and also there is one very large group that knows about the free market system – unlike so many just coming out of college – and those people are Ebay sellers. Yes, I think we are a good example of capitalism at work. So, I think we are all doing the right things … My spouse tooks the books I received on the Next Generation of God to the Post Office to be Returned to Sender. You know, neither one of those books had the words, “Holy Bible” on them. I side stepped another trap. I have also opened up International selling on all my Bibles, devotionals, etc. And, to top it off, – now, this is crazy-like, all I want to wear are long sleeve T-Shirts with a Cross on them – figure that one out. Me and Colonel West are kind of “recreating” ourselves. We are hopping all over the map. 2016 Election – Colonel West and Kerry – that is a joke, it is funny though.

    Didn’t our teachers grow up in America? Where is all this socialist agenda crap coming from?????? If they want to be Communists/socialists, there are plenty of countries already set up for it, and they should go there and teach. They are anti-capitalists, who do they think supports this great nation, the illegals and the drug dealers? Business owners and family oriented people do. They need to all go live in communes in CA.
