Texas educators have booted Hillary Clinton, Helen Keller and other historical figures from state social studies classes, which require students to learn about "significant social leaders in the United States".
Then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gestures as she speaks at a campaign rally on November 2, 2016, in Tempe, Ariz.
Board member Barbara Cargill said that work groups recommended removing Clinton, Hellen Keller, and Barry Goldwater from the curriculum, the Dallas News reported. The removal of Clinton is estimated to save teachers some 30 minutes, while Keller's exit from the curriculum will allow to save another 40 minutes. Children are taught about her life and accomplishments that include a college degree, published works, and activism efforts despite being deaf, mute, and blind.
Le chanteur Djamel Allam est décédé

The preliminary vote held Friday was not final and amendments can still be submitted, The Dallas Morning News reported.
The 15-member group who developed the recommendation created a rubric that was used to identify which historical figures are "essential" for students to learn about and which ones are not. The formula asked questions like, "Did the person trigger a watershed change"; "Was the person from an underrepresented group"; and "Will their impact stand the test of time?"
Hillary Clinton's fate could soon be finished in Texas schools as the school board is pushing to eliminate the former Democratic presidential nominee from their schools' history curriculum. Keller scored a 7 out of 20.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s 500th Goal Has to be Seen to be Believed!

Helen Keller is now part of the third-grade curriculum in Texas.
The board took into consideration curriculum recommendations made by board-nominated panels of volunteers, adopting some and ignoring others. The board voted to keep references of "Judeo-Christian" values and their influence on American politics and history.
By contrast, local members of the Texas Legislature (whom fourth-graders learn about) got a ideal score, as did Barbara Jordan, Sam Houston, Stephen F. Austin and Henry B. González. Also recommended for deletion but still kept in by the board: references to the "heroism" of defenders of the Alamo, which is problematic because those men were fighting, in part, for the right to practice slavery.
