What has happened to our country?

[A] teacher allegedly encouraged high school girls to dress up in full-length Islamic burqas and then instructed the entire class that Muslim terrorists are actually freedom fighters.

The incident occurred in a world geography class at Lumberton High School in the small town of Lumberton, Texas. The general topic of the class that day was Islam.

An unnamed student informed WND that the teacher said, “We are going to work to change your perception of Islam.”

“I do not necessarily agree with this,” the teacher also allegedly said, “but I am supposed to teach you that we are not to call these people terrorists anymore, but freedom fighters.”

The lesson plan reportedly came as part of the secretive CSCOPE program, which is being used in many public schools throughout the state of Texas. CSCOPE has come under increasing fire by parents and some teachers over the controversial content in its lesson plans. Texas CSCOPE Review, which is run by former teachers, serves as a nerve center and clearing house for stories regarding CSCOPE’s problematic lesson plans.

The Lumberton ISD has issued a statement admitting that it has purchased CSCOPE, but denying that this particular lesson plan was part of the CSCOPE curriculum. Lumberton is located in southeast Texas near Beaumont.

So when does the female circumcision part get under way?
Or the part where a woman is worth one-half of a man ?
Or the part that tells all those 'of the book' to lie like dogs to everyone else?
Here's hoping they define various trems that would shake them to their cores, like Taquiyya, Dhimmi or Jizya, and don't forget what is Haram.
This occurs in Texas ? Where's a posse, when you seek one...?

CSCOPE is a strictly unpublished online curriculum that is password protected and provides strict prohibitions to any user who provides copies of the materials. Because of the secretive nature of CSCOPE, it is reasonably easy for the site administrators to make any controversial items "disappear" from the database. (But maybe I'm being paranoid)

In the meantime, follow the money: CSCOPE, a product of Texas teachers who teamed up in a massive state effort to create lessons for Texas classrooms that would virtually guarantee that, if taught as directed, all teachers in every school throughout the state would cover the key points that Texas says are important — and that will be tested by TAKS tests or the soon-to-come STARR tests. The TESCCC, the nonprofit arm of the Education Service Centers that owns CSCOPE, appears to have a monopoly in the state that no competitor can puncture.

So - where are the tax returns and who's making the money?

Did the lesson also require an acid bath to any girl that doesn't want to wear a bag on her head? And did it discuss the social justification for honor killings? since we're trying to get the kids to understand islam.
