Re: “9 Things for Last Minute Voters to Know

Rodolfo Acuña's Occupied America: A History of Chicanos is a college and graduate level text that we utilized for our American History / Chicana-o Perspectives class; Luis Urrea's Devil's Highway is another college level read that we utilized in our Junior English/Chicana-o Literature class. Both of these texts, just two of a number of examples of rich, rigorous and engaging literature that were utilized in MAS coursework, were ones that mark stegeman's was so fearful and ignorant of. 6th grade level material they are not. stegeman's testimony against MAS, its curriculum and pedagogy, in the ALJ hearings as a "cult" (while noticeably shaking - listen to the audio, it's comical) further demonstrated his personal witch hunt he was determined to carry out. Marty and Mark, what privileges you both to the extent that you feel no need to substantiate your claims?

Mark and Marty read the Cabrera et al. (2012) report and the Cabrera et al. (2014), which will be published in the American Educational Research Journal, on the efficacy of MAS program.

Re: “Militarizing Cities, Criminalizing Schools

Harlan - do you want the etymology of the word "Pendejo," or a loose translated descriptor?

Re: “Militarizing Cities, Criminalizing Schools

Sal B - you got that anxiety that I mentioned above. I am employed by school systems all over the country, as a professional educational consultant, Pendejo. Disproportionate crime is a result of systemic racism that is perpetuated in the schools. Are you telling me something new that Whites do not want to live by Mexicans??? Computer science, engineering, medicine and highly developed analytical writing skills are all had by students who have gone through the former Chicana/o Studies classes. That is why folks like you were sure to eliminate it, too many smart Chicana/o kids that run circles around folks like you.

Re: “Militarizing Cities, Criminalizing Schools

Francis - the reason why TUSD has TPD in schools is because of "white anxiety." Most teachers and administrators are either frightened of Brown/Black youth and or are vehement racists and hate our kids. The majority of TUSD staff is culturally incompetent and cannot effectively engage students. Most teachers and administrators do not have the skill set necessary to develop healthy relationships with students. TUSD had an effective program in doing so, the Mexican American/Raza Studies Department. The elimination of this program is continuous with racism in Arizona schools, and so called the high-spanic apologists who perpetuate this criminalization of racism in our schools.
