God bless Texas!
The Texas State Board of Education has voted to remove former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from classroom studies in an effort to “streamline” the curriculum, according to The Dallas Morning News.
The board voted Friday to make changes to what students are required to learn, with Clinton and Helen Keller being among the historical figures who were removed from the curriculum.
Board member Barbara Cargill, a Republican, told the newspaper that work groups recommended removing Clinton and Keller.
“In speaking to teachers and testifiers, they did not mention these specific deletions,” Cargill said.
The motivation behind the decision, according to a couple of teachers in the work group, was that Texas requires students to learn about so many historical figures that it resulted in students memorizing dates over learning about the individuals, the Morning News reported.
Figures were ranked using questions such as, “Did the person trigger a watershed change”; “Was the person from an underrepresented group”; and “Will their impact stand the test of time?”
Hills scored a meager 5 out of a possible 20 points, with the group estimating that removing her will teachers 30 minutes of instructional time.
All of which makes for a sad reflection on her legacy, given that she was once first lady, secretary of state and first female presidential nominee from a major political party — that she leaves so little an impression may explain she lost in 2016.
Removing figures from the curriculum doesn’t mean that they cannot be taught in the classroom, just that it’s not mandatory and the move will not affect textbooks or other instructional material.
