    blanked out

    Margie was disappointed. She had been hoping they would take the teacher away altogether. They had once taken Tommy's teacher away for nearly a month because the history sector had blanked out completely.

    What does `blanked out' mean in this context?

    Please explain me.

    It means "the history sector had finished already".

    Had finished? What?

    BLANK OUT also means to cut out.

    Ah, at the first thought, the fact that the history sector had been cut out completely was not very probable to me and so, I guessed that phrase might mean "finish". Thank you so much for the correction. I should be very careful next time.
