Huppenthal slashes TUSD's funding over Mexican-American Studies

Huppenthal slashes TUSD's funding over Mexican-American Studies

Arizona Schools Chief John Huppenthal has ordered that 10 percent of TUSD’s monthly state aid be withheld as a result of its Mexican American Studies Program.

The decision, which was released Friday, could cost Tucson’s largest school district millions.

Huppenthal maintained his original position that the contentious program is in violation of state law, saying the courses promote racial resentment, are designed primarily for one ethnic group and advocate for ethnic solidarity instead of treating pupils as individuals.
