These Texas Educators Should Have Some Explaining To Do

By Danette Clark

Now that CSCOPE has been exposed, thanks in large part to the ladies at and, Texans can start taking out the trash and turning their schools around.

In an attempt to lend a hand to my neighbor state, I’m posting some background information that might help and the names of a few Texas educators who should be made to answer for their involvement in the progressive takeover of Texas schools.

As I wrote in Indoctrination in Texas Schools Long Before CSCOPE, radical educators infiltrated several Texas school districts many years ago.

One of the state’s largest threats is Texas ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development), which opened in 1947. Today, Texas ASCD partners with many liberal education organizations, including the Houston Annenberg Challenge, CES Small Schools Project, and Communities in Schools of Texas.

Working in partnership with the University of Texas, Texas A&M, and other universities, ASCD helps recruit and train new liberal educators for placement in K-12 schools.

ASCD promotes curriculum that is designed around “essential questions”, a teaching strategy created by Theodore Sizer.

Sizer’s Coalition of Essential Schools (CES), which started out with only twelve schools in 1984, is now a national hub for thousands of progressive educators and hundreds of organizations.

ASCD is one of the largest and most powerful of those organizations.  An ASCD office can be found in 49 states in the U.S.

Below is a list of Texas educators that have been working directly with Texas ASCD, whose mission it is to place radical educators and pro-communist curricula into classroom.
