The State Board of Education in Texas voted on Friday to eliminate several historical figures, including Hillary Clinton and Helen Keller, from the states 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."

Now I remember why I live here.
what nobody remembers, is that Helen Keller was a raving left-wing, flagburning Socialist. Read her writings, and it sounds more like some crap you'd hear from Cuba or Red China.
Not a good idea. We need to teach the next generation who were the traitors to the Republic.
Dont mess with Texas. Now put the real history of the Vietnam war where we won, came home and the democrat socialists cut off the money to resupply the South and the communists invaded. We had only 3000 us military there left on in Saigon!! We live lie after lie. IT MUST STOP!!
Love it! Giving the left a taste of their own medicine.
Hopefully this is one of many sh_t sandwiches to cram down their throats.
How does it feel, Hillary?
On the surface it seem’s GREAT! But any censorship of wrong no matter what topic or individual...if it happened record and report and let the person make his own opinion.
Why should she be there? She was a senator from ny a secreatary if state and a failed presidential hopeful...
Can you recall being taught any of those things? I dont ever recall learning any of those things. Other than being first woman at the top of a ticket, really nothing else to see when it comes to basic civics
I ‘hear’ ya! (lol)...
Did you ‘see’ what I did there?
Walter Mondale still gets mentioned though, right???
What is historical about Hillary?
Does she deserve more ink than the woman who ran for President in 1972?
I challenge Hillary voters to name her VP candidate...
Wipe her out of textbooks with a cloth.
Who is Hillary?
If Helen Keller had been somehow not aborted and actually born in China, she’d have died a crib death upon finding out she was dead and blind.
Yes. Helen Keller’s achievements were remarkable. But can you imagine a person easier to indoctrinate? Blind and deaf she could not easily seek out alternate sources of information. She absorbed what was fed to her. If her handlers wanted to explain what a genius Karl Marx was, and how evil Capitalism was, of course she believed them. Why wouldn’t she?
They just exploited her.
Now I remember why I live here.
Me too!! I’m Texas born, Texas bred and when I die I’ll be Texas dead!!
We need to teach the next generation who were the traitors to the Republic.
Too many of them to put in a book
That decision wont age well, should we ever manage to lock her up.
