Klemm, neuroscientist at Texas A&M University, explains why “cursive makes kids smarter.”  Texas English / Language Arts / Reading (ELAR) curriculum standards (TEKS) require cursive to be taught starting in Grade 3.  Once it is taught at that grade level, Texas students under these new ELAR…

TEXAS STUDENT TELLS ALL, CSCOPE, STAAR-EOC TESTS, -- ALICE LINAHAN SHOW - 8.2213

 

 

“Alice Linahan Show: Texas School Student Tells All, CSCOPE, STAAR/EOC’s”

by Donna Garner

8.22.13

 

Last night on the Alice Linahan Radio Show, a 10th grader named Jessica explained what it was like to be a public school student living under CSCOPE. Because teens “tell it like it is,” listeners will love Jessica’s honest explanations from a student’s perspective.  Also, I explained the 2013…

CSCOPE: CHANGE IN STRATEGY -- BY DONNA GARNER -- 8.19.13

 

“CSCOPE: Change in Strategy”

By Donna Garner

8.19.13

 

I sent out an article yesterday and indicated that just because the judge had halted the CSCOPE restraining order filed by the LLano ISD parents/grandparents/citizens, “Nothing has changed with this ruling: CSCOPE is still a bad ‘brand’ and because of its many deficiencies that caused the Texas Legislature to vote against it, local school districts are foolish to keep…

NOTHING HAS CHANGED -- CSCOPE STILL BAD BRAND -- BY DONNA GARNER -- 8.18.13

“Judge Halts CSCOPE on Basis of Procedural Issues”

by Donna Garner

8.18.13

 

Please notice that the judge did not issue a judgment about whether school districts that use CSCOPE lessons are breaking the law (SB 1406).  The judge avoided that issue.  He seemed to base his decision on the fact that the plaintiffs could not prove they would be in eminent harm if the CSCOPE lessons were used.  Of course, it is actually their children’s…

“Waco ISD – CSCOPE District – Achievement Gaps Increased”

by Donna Garner

8.16.13

 

 

[Comments from Donna Garner:  Here is an example of a school district – Waco ISD – that spent $140,982 (2012-2013) in one year alone to purchase CSCOPE. Undoubtedly, Waco ISD has spent that much and more on CSCOPE in past years also. Yet the achievement gap has INCREASED – not DECREASED (see article posted…
