6th graders are being asked to design new flags for communist countries in school districts across Texas as part of a curriculum critics have decried as “mind control” intended to make children sympathize with socialist ideals.
Creators of CSCOPE, an electronic curriculum management system used in over 70 per cent of school districts in Texas, were confronted by witnesses and members of the Senate Education Committee during a hearing last week in Austin, who complained that the material included in the program was “anti-Christian at best and openly socialist at worst.”
One lesson plan involved students being set the task of designing symbols for communist flags. The plan, “showed different countries’ flags and instructed students to “notice that socialist and communist countries use symbolism on their flags.” It went on to ask students what symbols they would use if they were to create a flag for a new socialist country.”
Senator Larry Taylor questioned whether the lesson was intended to influence children into, “sympathizing with those types of countries.”
Other lesson plans, which are included to ensure teachers, “adhere to complicated state curriculum requirements,” portrayed participants in the Boston Tea Party as terrorists while promoting pro-Islamic ideals.
