Arizona to Ban Mexican American History ~

  Broadcast in Education

Call in to speak with the host

Students from across the country are collecting petitions to address this issue.

A judge in Arizona has decided to make a Mexican American history program taught in the Tucson Unified School District just that: history. According to Judge Lewis D Kowal, the program is in violation of state law.

The legislation in question went on the books a year ago and says that Arizona schools can’t offer studies designed for students of any particular ethnic group, a move that US Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) called at its passing a “dangerous precedent.”

"This legislation against diversity might be focused on Tucson," Grijalva told the Huffington Post earlier this year, "but it has significant ramifications across the country."
