Precious Knowledge - Fighting for Mexican American Studies in Arizona Schools
The Jan 26 film is about the Mexican American Studies program in Tucson, Arizona, that basically doubled the local retention/graduation rate for Mexican American students, but was wiped out by local politicians as "racist." What is ethnic studies, and why is it so controversial? We'll talk....and catch up on recent court decisions.
Film is just under an hour, in English only (sorry, I know that makes no sense).
