In the past Texas teachers were required to teach about Hillary Clinton as her time as first lady and Sec of State and Hellen Keller's life

The Texas board of Ed coted today to remove these two from required learning and added Billy Ghram as required tea Hing for Social Studies

That's odd. Last week, the same group of liberals was thinking of saying that the Texans who fought at the Alamo weren't heroes. I agree with removing HIllary. Helen Keller should remain.

I think children would be more well served in life by dropping social studies all together and replacing it with a STEM class

I don't. People who don't under REAL history are doomed to repeat it. That's why we have the group of illiterate morons on our college campuses now that are advocating socialism.

I suppose if you just want a bunch of worker bees who do as told and don't understand anything else.

Students should absolutely learn about their state, country, world, and the social and political issues that shaped it.

We also need to go back to more classes that teach some basics. A community college just a few miles from me has classes to teach kids how to read and write!!! These are kids with a high school diploma!

We shouldn't be passing and graduating kids who don't earn it.

We are failing our children by not teaching them. They learn more about activism than life skills!

I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner. I mean it's a little silly teach kids about someone overcoming great adversity in their life to achieve success when your primary goal is to churn out mindless drones who will give up and let the government take care of them. Plus her father was an officer in the confederate army and could have hung a confederate battle flag on the farm somewhere *gasp*.....we don't need crap like that polluting the public schools.

:rolleyes:

I think it's pretty messed up that they failed to mention anything about the Tulsa race riots when I took oklahoma history in highschool. Not a word about it in our textbooks.

We could teach a lot of things that aren't currently being taught. It mostly depends on to what age you want to remain in school.

Not sure if you are responding to my post or the thread in general, but if it was to my post, it was an Oklahoma History class, not a US history class. There would've been time to mention it. But it's obvious that some influencial Oklahoma families probably would rather it not be talked about.
