    Quis Custodiet Ipsos Custodes? Who is watching the watchers?

    Not a bad idea.

    Too bad we can't dump Slick Willie, too.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.

      You probably didn't notice, but they also want to remove Helen Keller, probably one of the bravest women on the planet and the all time poster-person fro the handicapped.

        I didn't. I don't like socialists, and Keller was a raving socialist.

          In order to insert historical footnotes like Keller, we've all but eliminated teaching of critical and influential theorists like Smith, Locke and Madison. If I have to give up Keller along with Clinton in order to get the time for the really influential funda,entails, I'm ok with tha.

          caveat: I didn't read the article, just posted based on the discussion.

            Forget theorists. Tell them about people who actually got out and accomplished something.

              Just make sure your history duly acknowledges and lauds the brave people who made sure to excise Hillary Clinton et al. from it.

                This is one of the problems when you focus your history teaching on the last 10 years.

                Clinton should be in the politics curriculum not the the history one. She only became a public figure in 2009 when she became SOS.

                  There generally is no politics curriculum. It all just falls under history.

                    Kind of hard to rave when you're deaf and blind. And the government of her time was hardly a good one.

                        It's called either civics or government. And it is taught usually in a separate class from history. I remember taking civics in high school and my son has it this semester.

                        Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                        Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                        To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                            You should teach history, not just what history you pick out to teach. As long as they portray Hilary as she really was they should still teach about her. Granted she doesn't have a big role in our history, but she does have one. I have never liked her nor supported her but she does have a place in the history of our nation. This could lead to other people being eliminated from our teachings.

                              Yea, she could be in the unit on great American criminals like Dillinger, Gotti, or the Newton Boys....
