Mexican-American studies banned (in America)

So the Tucson Unified Schools Board voted to end the Mexican-American studies program. Well then. An NBC Latino article states, "Students in the courses will now be dispersed among other classes." So now what? Students can still learn about their own (or new) culture by studying on their own...that's what I would think. But for now, schools will only be teaching American culture, which is strange because the program was called Mexican-American. If this were to happen all over the country, what would that say about our lawmakers? What would it say about education? It's amazing how some people can use the Census numbers for something good and politicians are reaching out to Hispanic voters yet they ban our own history from schools. Interesting indeed.

Should Mexican-Studies be banned? Why Arizona?
