The Texas State Board of Education in a reversal on Tuesday voted to keep Hillary Clinton, Hellen Keller and several other figures in the state's history curriculum.
Board member Erika Beltran (D) said backlash sparked by an initial vote in September to eliminate Clinton and Keller from the state's required teachings in September influenced her decision.
"I got a ton of calls and emails about the removal of Hillary Clinton," she said, according to The Dallas Morning News. "She was the first female presidential nominee from a major U.S. political party. So regardless of our party affiliations, I think she is an important figure to keep."
