    Default Mom Outraged After Finding Stunning Question About 9/11, Terrorism on Her Sonís test

    A Texas mom is furious after discovering that her son’s school is teaching students that the United States is partly to blame for the 9/11 terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people.

    Kara Sands, of Corpus Christi, Texas, took to her Facebook and posted photos of the test administered by Flour Bluff Intermediate School. The test reportedly covered content in a video fifth-grade students watched in class.

    Of all the questions about the 9/11 attacks, Sands was most disturbed by question three:

    “Why might the United States be a target for terrorism?” The answer? “Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere.”

    Unsurprisingly, the stunningly controversial lesson plan is part of the CSCOPE curriculum system that has come under fire recently. The same system includes lessons asking students to design a flag for a “new socialist nation” and dubs the Boston Tea Party as an “act of terrorism.”

    “I’m not going to justify radical terrorists by saying we did anything to deserve that — over 3,000 people died,” Sands told KRIS-TV.

    The irate mother immediately contacted her son’s principal and teacher and set up meetings with them. The school then reached out to the video’s distributor, Safari Montage.

    “Representatives say they stand behind the video, but have already changed the corresponding quiz that may have caused confusion,” according to the report.

    Another worksheet on the Bill of Rights apparently names food and medicine as “rights,” not a personal responsibility, according to Sands. She said her son’s answer was falsely marked wrong because he labeled food and medicine as the latter.

    As a Texas parent, Sands said she is very concerned about what CSCOPE is teaching children. But the Flour Bluff Independent School District released a statement defending the use of CSCOPE.

    Several parents are reportedly planning to bring the issue up during the next school board meeting on March 28 and Sands is encouraging more parents to get involved.

    “When I teach my children that you have to work hard and you have to earn a living and they go to school and learn something different I absolutely take issue with that,” she added.

    Read TheBlaze’s most recent report on CSCOPE, here http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013...iculum-system/ .

    Messages left by TheBlaze for Sands were not immediately returned. However, this story may be updated with additional information.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Umm, maybe because it's the truth?

    Maybe if we didn't stick our fucking nose in everyone else's business, people wouldn't be so pissed off at us?

    Just a thought.

    She only gave him $0.70, as he stole a $1.05 from some other kid that didn't need it.

    It only said WHY might the US be a target for an attack? BFD. It didn't say we deserved it even.

    Although I read the story and I am glad we don't have to deal with that CSCOPE stuff in schools here, seems like an odd teaching curriculum.

    I would have chosen answer E. It would be a write in answer: "Because muslim terrorists are fucking retards."
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    indeed they are - and that's a fair answer.

    the best answer would be "our foreign policy includes pissing off freaking lunatics. And that makes a target of their crazy ass behaviour".

    I love this country, damn glad I live in it, but we are definitely not either, unless military might counts for being the "greatest".

    been to America dozens of times.

    80% of you - some of the nicest people you'd ever meet in your life. Just great, great people.

    15% - complete pieces of human shit.

    5% - smart people who i wouldn't trust with a nickel.

    Somehow only the 2nd and 3rd categories are eligible to hold public office it seems. And many outsiders view those politicians as "America". Big mistake.
