Texas votes to erase Hillary Clinton from history curriculum...

Texas State Board of Education votes to erase Hillary Clinton from history curriculum

BY ARIS FOLLEY - 09/14/18 04:01 PM EDT

The State Board of Education in Texas voted on Friday to eliminate several historical figures, including Hillary Clinton and Helen Keller, from the state’s social studies curriculum.

Barbara Cargill, a Texas Republican and member of the board, told The Dallas Morning News that "the recommendation to eliminate Helen Keller and Hillary Clinton was made by [Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills] work groups.”

“However the board did vote to agree with the work groups' recommendations,” Cargill pointed out. "In speaking to teachers and testifiers, they did not mention these specific deletions."

The decision made by the 15-member body reportedly came as part of an overall effort to "streamline" the state’s social studies curriculum.

Texas high school students have been required to learn about Clinton after the former first lady made history in 2016 by becoming the first woman to be the presidential nominee of a major political party.

Texas third-grade students have also been required to learn about Keller, who went on to become the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree and later led a life of activism.

Members of the volunteer work group that made such recommendations to the board said the state requires children to learn about too many historical figures.

So, the volunteer work group was tasked with creating a rubric for grading historical figures to deem who was "essential" to learn about and who wasn't. The group would ponder things like whether the historical figure triggered a watershed change or if he or she were from an underrepresented group.

Clinton reportedly scored a five on the 20-point grading rubric, and Keller scored a seven.

Though the vote on Friday was preliminary, the board, whose members are elected to represent specific geographical areas, is scheduled to cast a final vote on the decision this coming November.

While hilarious, I feel like that is an extremely poor precedent to set, akin to all the butthurt libs tearing down statues of Robert E. Lee because they became so triggered at the thought he was ever alive once.

You can't legislate away history or the people that made it.

Agreed. This is why I believe in privatized school. State controlled school is dangerous.

But be accurate, a de-emphasis isn't erasure.

TX isn't denying her existence, just removing a priority mandate.

RWNJs: Removing a statue is erasing the history books!

I certainly hope that they reverse themselves on Helen Keller. The "first broad/dude to try shit and get partway" stuff is pretty meaningless outside of trivia games, but the first deaf-blind person to accomplish at the level that Keller did is, to me, noteworthy.

True, and as you can see, it truly can have a negative effect.

Blacks have been kept from their own history. Most believe it starts and ends with MLK.

I would agree. Helen Keller is an inspirational and noteworthy American

Isn't this the same bunch that de-emphasized slavery's association with the Civil War and decided not to mention the segregation/Jim Crow era?

New Texas history book:

"In 2016, the greatest president ever, Donald Trump, was elected. He said it was the most historic election ever. His opponent was Individual A and was not noteworthy in any way or worth mentioning. The important thing is that he had the largest inaguration crowd ever. Now, let's move on."

All this stupid extreme left and right wanting to ban, censor, remove, change and ignore the other side is ridiculous.

It should be taught how corrupt and evil she is (you know, teaching facts), so that way people know the type of people that have been in control and to try and make sure it doesn't happen again.
