AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Education officials will have to rewrite classroom tests used in hundreds of Texas school districts after conservative activists posted their questions and answers online.
The Austin American Statesman reported Saturday that 30 tests were published this week on two conservative Websites.
The tests were produced under a controversial curriculum system originally known as CSCOPE. Last week, though, it underwent a name change.
Some tea party groups say CSCOPE promoted anti-American, anti-Christian values.
Mason Moses, a spokesman for the state-funded Education Service Centers which developed CSCOPE, said it could cost up to $1 million if a rewrite of all compromised tests is required.
Created in 2006, CSCOPE was meant to provide school districts with a cost-effective package of lesson plans, tests and other tools aligned with state curriculum standards.
