    Texas Education Board votes to cut Hillary Clinton’s name from student curriculum

    Students in Texas will not be obliged to learn about Hillary Clinton in their history class, but will discuss the impact of Moses on the nation’s founding documents, according to the State Board of Education’s vote.

    The move, which is so far preliminary, is an effort to streamline the curriculum, according to The Dallas Morning News. Teachers told the outlet that students have too many figures to learn about that it just turns the studies into memorizing. So a volunteer group of teachers has been appointed by the board to grade the significance of various people. Clinton scored 5 on 20-point scale.

    The former Democratic Party candidate and the first woman to run for President was not the only historic figure recommended to be dunked from the state curriculum in a traditionally Republican state.

    Helen Keller, the first blind and deaf person to become a college graduate, may also be removed from the mandatory list of historic figures taught at Texas schools if the proposal is approved at a final vote in November after a designated period of public response expires.

    The move has been touted by the board as a time-saving measure. 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.

    The amendments to the statewide curriculum are bound to affect some 5.4 million public school students if adopted.

    The board voted to keep the reference to Judeo-Christian values and their impact on the shaping of the US history and political discourse. Prophet Moses will be also reinserted into the program, while philosopher Thomas Hobbes will be eliminated. The curriculum will also require students to explain how the "Arab rejection of the State of Israel has led to ongoing conflict" in the Middle East.

    The proposal has immediately stirred controversy, with Clinton supporters, including her celebrity backers like actresses Barbara Streisand and Debra Messing taking to Twitter to voice their righteous protest and indignation.

    However, contrary to the claims of multiple Clinton's defenders, her absence from the education-board approved list does not prevent teachers from mentioning Clinton’s political work in other contexts rather than specifically focusing on her role as the first woman to win the nomination.

    State of confusion
    I vote they find room for a few minutes about the Clinton Foundation, perhaps replacing Al Capone, and an explanation of Arkancide, replacing Jimmy Hoffa.

    As liberal as the teaching profession has become, i seriously doubt "Saint Hillary" will not be mentioned and discussed--especially during any election time....
