Tucson School District to Reintroduce ‘Raza Studies’ After Stacking School Board with Sympathizers

Via KGUN 9 – Tucson:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) The Tucson Unified School District Governing Board is reversing itself by voting to drop an objection to providing so-called “culturally relevant” courses for core credit beginning next school year.

The courses would focus on experiences, culture and history of Mexican-Americans and African-Americans.

The governing board had objected to offering the courses as part of anti-desegregation plan.

However, the board reversed its position in a 3-2 vote Tuesday as two newly elected board members supported the change.

The district previously eliminated Mexican-American Studies courses after state officials ruled that the courses’ content violated a law against curriculum that engendered racial or ethnic disharmony.
