Hillary Clinton could soon disappear from the history curriculum in Texas.
The Texas state board of education voted Friday to remove the former Democratic presidential nominee and secretary of state from the history curriculum, the Dallas Morning News reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
The vote was preliminary, and the board will take a final vote on the change in November. The board can also make amendments to the curriculum before then.
Eliminating Clinton from the curriculum would not mean teachers could not teach about her, but rather they would no longer be mandated to do so. And the board is not making any changes to textbooks or other instructional material.
Clinton, the first woman to win a major political party’s presidential nomination, had been included in the curriculum in a section about citizenship, where students evaluated “the contributions of significant political and social leaders in the United States.”
