Knowing the history of your country is essential, children should learn about every historical figure. But, a historical figure is not someone who owes her entire career to her husband? I am sure there are plenty of women who made it on their own.
Luckily, on Friday, the State Board of Education in Texas has voted to remove the former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Helen Keller and other historical figures from state social studies classes. This was only a preliminary vote and the final decision set to come in November.
Speaking to The Dallas Morning News, Barbara Cargill, a representative of the board said:
The recommendation to eliminate Helen Keller and Hillary Clinton were made by [Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills] workgroups.
However, the board did vote to agree with the work groups’ recommendations. In speaking to teachers and testifiers, they did not mention these specific deletions.
This decision was come to after the members of the board are attempting to ‘streamline’ the overall curriculum for students in the state.
Hillary Clinton has been part of their curriculum since the 2016 presidential election as she was the first woman to ever be a presidential nominee for a major party in the US.
Helen Keller, who was the first deaf-blind person to Bachelor of Arts degree and later became an activist for people with disabilities.
However, despite those notable achievements, the volunteer work group felt that children in Texas have to learn about too many historical figures and have decided to cut them.”
I don’t know why she would have been included in the curriculum, to begin with
However, the Texas school board missed the whole point of history. It is not to memorize people’s names and events. It is to learn from the past. What about teaching the children what happened to the AMERICAN’S Killed in Benghazi? We should never forget and learn from her failure.
History has to record the truth and American People need the truth and children of the future will need the truth.
