Predictably: It happened

Comment by Jim Campbell

November 16, 2018

We knew it would eventually happen, run long enough for enough stuff an eventually victory is finally tasted.

The Texas State Board of Education have elected to keep Hillary Clinton, Helen Keller and several other historical figures in the Texas social studies curriculum.

 

 

Clinton, Keller and other figures were on the chopping block, but ultimately will remain as well as (much to the chagrin of leftist) the biblical figure Moses, who is currently listed as a basis of Law in the U.S. government curriculum.

 

Certainly they had the NRA back than and Chuck ran it !

The “R” stood for rod!

The board undertook this curriculum streamlining effort to save teachers time and provide them more flexibility in the classroom.

Students are resorting to rote memorization instead of real learning, the board said, and one way to tackle this would be to cut down on what they’re required to learn.

 

Helen Keller and Her Beloved Cat ‘Mittens’

“When it comes to writing curriculum standards for our kids’ schools, it’s painfully clear that the personal beliefs of politicians on the state board matter more than what countless historians and teachers have told them is factually true.

Rather than teaching the truth, too many board members stubbornly mislead students on fundamental facts from our nation’s history.

Now we have washing machines used to brain wash them.

Texas kids deserve a lot better than a politicized version of history that fuels so many of the divisions in our country today.”

Time out for some humor, if you don’t need it, move along.

Volunteer working groups were convened to find places to cut and tweak the curriculum.
The board then took up these suggested changes in September, voting to eliminate Clinton, Helen Keller and dozens of other historical figures.
Since then, the story has gone viral, with the majority-Republican board accused of allowing its politics to influence what kids are taught in classrooms. 
The board voted 12-2 to keep Clinton with Republicans Pat Hardy of Fort Worth and Geraldine “Tincy” Miller of Dallas voting for elimination.

Hardy said she voted to axe Clinton because “she doesn’t represent good citizenship.”

And finally on Wednesday, the board shot down an attempt by board member Erika Beltran, D-Fort Worth, and backed by all other five of the board’s Democrats, to cut Moses from the high school U.S. government standard that describes him as an ‘individual whose principles of laws and government institutions informed the American founding documents’.

“This particular individual, we have no evidence that he actually influenced the founding fathers,” Beltran said, to which board member Bradley who objected replied, “I’m going to go ahead and err on the side of caution.
I’d rather disagree with you than Moses.”

The board also rejected a recommendation to remove a reference to the “heroism” of the defenders of the Alamo, meaning, as a Board of Education release said: “Texas schoolchildren will still learn of the heroic ‘Victory or Death’ letter penned by Lt. Col. William Barret Travis while besieged in the Alamo.”

Carisa Lopez, political director of the leftist nonprofit Texas Freedom Network (which describes itself as the “state’s watchdog for monitoring far-right issues, organizations, money and leaders”), reacted to the latest vote by the board in expected ironic fashion:

Bless Her Heart….

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.
