Re: [xmca] Horne pushing for ban to ethnics studies

This is a really tragic situation that you guys have living in the US. I think it is the legacy of slavery 150 years later. A system based on the absolute and brutal subjugation of labour leaves scars on social consciousness that will take a long time to fade. I have a friend who lives in NY who suggests that the best thing would be to undo the work of the Civil War and let the Confederate States go their own way. ... Not a good idea, but the depth of this reactionary thinking really makes you pull your hair out, doesn't it!

In middle of an anti-immigrant environment because the BP1070 law in Arizona, the state superintendent of public instruction, Tom Horne, is pushing for ban studies on literature, government and history that show the role of native american, mexican, asian and african-american heritage on american history (in fact, the law was recently approved). The district or charter schools that allowed these course would lose ten percent of its state funds each month in spite of, according to Tucson school district, students who take the courses perform better on state's
 AIMS test that student who do not take the courses.

I believe in
cultural perspective of human and a nation could have a lot of perspectives not just one, a official one. That is a big mistake of the Arizona's government



 spanish information:

There is no only political implication on this topic but educational too. Under a cross-cultural perspective this is a important case of study
