Does TUSD's ethnic studies program violate Arizona's new law? - KGUN 9 On Your Side, Tucson News, Weather & Sports

Arce did not deny that protesters seen walking out of class and pumping their fists in the air in recent days were TUSD students. But he was not willing to concede that in doing so, they took any inspiration from his course. "These are historical episodes. We look at all historic episodes in their totality.... We don't have workshops on how to protest or how to organize in the community. These are simply historical episodes." When asked directly if there's any chance students might be emulating what they saw in the textbook, Arce replied, "Not whatsoever."
