Back in early 2011, Arizona banned ethnic studies and a judge just upheld it as being Constitutional. The law states that you cannot have a class that promotes one ethnicity or raises tensions against another ethnicity.
Arizona state officials have won a significant legal battle in a long-running saga over a controversial Tucson schools ethnic-studies program, with a federal judge ruling that a law designed to ban it is constitutional. Authorities instrumental in the law’s passage said Monday that they feel vindicated in their efforts to ban what they deemed to be racially divisive courses in public schools. The challenge to the new state law was initially launched in 2010 by teachers of the Tucson Unified School District Mexican-American studies program, which offered a slate of history, government and literature classes at four high schools.
