Video duration: 26:46Video has closed captioning.

An education resource which was created to provide small school districts with lesson plans remains a controversial issue in Texas. CSCOPE was dismantled by the state legislature this year but reappeared as a public domain resource for schools that still want to use it. The State Board of Education has been tasked with evaluating the program for future use.
