Arizona’s Ethnic Studies Program Ruled Illegal!

Article by: JACQUES BILLEAUD , Associated Press

PHOENIX – An administrative law judge ruled Tuesday that a Tucson school district’s ethnic studies program violates state law, agreeing with the findings of Arizona’s public schools chief.

Judge Lewis Kowal’s ruling marked a defeat for the Tucson Unified School District, which appealed the findings issued in June by Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal.

Kowal’s ruling, first reported by The Arizona Daily Star, said the district’s Mexican-American Studies program violated state law by having one or more classes designed primarily for one ethnic group, promoting racial resentment and advocating ethnic solidarity instead of treating students as individuals.


What bullshit! Racist bastard!
From the news article:
“However, teaching oppression objectively is quite different than actively presenting material in a biased, political and emotionally charged manner, which is what occurred in (Mexican-American Studies) classes,” Kowal wrote.

The judge said such teaching promotes activism against white people, promotes racial resentment and advocates ethnic solidarity.
So teaching activism against white people, promoting racial resentment and presenting material in a biased, political and emotionally charged manner IS NOT racism..............but refusing to allow it to be taught IS RACISM.
