Last week, the Texas Board of Education preliminarily voted to update the K-12 curriculum by eliminating several historical figures, including Helen Keller. Proponents said dropping the Keller lesson would save teachers 40 minutes. In the @washingtonpost, Haben Girma, a Deaf-blind disability rights lawyer, author and public speaker said she objects to Keller's removal and wrote: "Spending 40 minutes annually to teach children about Keller is not just worthwhile but also imperative. The story serves as a gateway to conversations about disability and virtue. It introduces students to Braille, a tactile reading method that blind people have used since 1824. Children also learn about American Sign Language, a visual language developed by the Deaf community. Keller held her hand over another person’s to feel each letter as it was signed, then finger-spelled or voiced her response. She spent her life teaching people about the abilities of people with disabilities. She also advocated for women’s rights, racial equality and workers’ advancement. Keller wanted to make the world better for all of us." She adds, "If Texas removes Keller’s story from the curriculum, when will non-disabled children learn about disability? Her story is too often the only disability story. Deleting Keller from the curriculum can mean deleting disability from the curriculum." The board will make a final decision in November.
