Petition in Support of Ethnic Studies in AZ

A Message from MALCS Member Alvina Quintana:

Subject: Superintendent Huppenthal, Stop attacking Mexican American
Studies & reinstate TUSD’s MAS program

Hello MALCS Members and Friends,

Huppenthal has eliminated a successful Mexican American Studies in
Tucson Unified School District, and is now calling for a ban on
Mexican American Studies in AZ’s public universities. The state should
not be telling students what they cannot read and professors what they
cannot teach.

We provide asylum to students and professors in whose countries books,
curriculum, and ideas are banned.  Huppenthal’s actions violate the
most basic spirit of our country’s founding principles.

That’s why I signed a petition to John Huppenthal, AZ State
Superintendent of Public Instruction and TUSD Board of Education.
