Tucson Unified School District
Those running the Tucson Unified School District in Arizona deemed that Mexican American studies in public schools. While they were under pressure from the state government (calling Jan Brewer), the school district voted to abandon its Mexican American Studies courses in order to bring the district in compliance with a new law which forbade classes that advocated the overthrow of the US, promoted racial resentment, or emphasized students’ ethnicities rather than individuality. Moreover, the books that were part of the program were banned too! (At least, in the teaching of classes). There are currently talks to restore the program.
