Texas May Remove Hillary Clinton And Helen Keller From Curriculum

Hillary Clinton may be taken off the social studies curriculum for students in Texas as the states board of education looks to cut out several historical figures.

????The cuts are part of an attempt to streamline the states curriculum, arguing that students are forced to learn about too many historical figures, according to The Dallas Morning News.

????But it’s not just Clinton -- the first and only woman to be nominated as a presidential nominee -- but deaf-blind activist Helen Keller may also be cut.

????The fifteen person board used a scale to grade which historical figures were essential for children to learn about.

????Clinton received five points while Keller got seven.????But there were other changes the board is seeking to make, most notably to reinsert references to the biblical figure Moses and his influence on the founding U.S. Documents.

????As well as adding back in reference to the “heroism” of the defenders of the Alamo.

????Teachers will be able to discuss historical figures who are voted out but they will no longer be part of the required curriculum.

????The proposal will be put to a final vote in November.??
