31. Not just science, also history and social studies. Texas is trying that right now.

"Former secretary of State Colin Powell is out. So is Mother Teresa.

Former senator Phil Gramm, R-Texas, also didn't make the cut.

Nor did Revolutionary war hero Nathan Hale, Florence Nightingale, Sigmund Freud or Carl Sagan.

But Hector P. Garcia is in. So is former secretary of State James A. Baker.

Likewise, Howard Hughes Sr., Thurgood Marshall and Ross Perot.

.."The decisions have major implications outside the state because Texas buys a large number of textbooks and publishers are not eager to print different editions for different states."
