border dia de los muertes

Dia de Los Muertos is here This image (source: http://bit.ly/T7NV6Z) was taken at the U.S./Mexico border, in remembrance of all the human tragedy that has occurred here, the world’s busiest border. But more than just a homage to the human death toll, this piece carries a potent message of just how broken our immigration system is, how strained relations are between both nations, and how many dreams have perished at this border.

Must-watch VIDEO documentary! Outlawing Shakespeare: The Battle for the Tucson Mind

Shakespeare Burning

I highly recommend watching the latest documentary (above) to be released focusing on Tucson and its largest school district (TUSD) and how the leaders of superintendent John Pedicone’s district allowed a racist state law to supersede a federally protected educational program for minorities which was benefitting all students. The documentary addresses questions and issues that I never have and includes video I have never seen before until now. It also provides a nice summary of the events that took place, and includes interviews with politicians on all sides of the political spectrum, from State Senator Gallardo to Tucson Mayor Rothschild […]

AZPM, the “local NPR,” asked the TUSD candidates about their stances on the Mexican American Studies (MAS) program that was banned earlier this year. Betts Putnam-Hidalgo‘s first sentence in her response makes her position clear. “We should work at the federal level to reinstate Mexican American Studies.” Betts goes on to mention how the federal desegregation order currently in place on TUSD defends the MAS program, and once against she asserts her desire to reinstate the MAS program.

The new leaders of Tucson will be from the MAS program that TUSD and Pedicone banned

For whatever reason, Jeff Biggers, the author of the latest book on Arizona, which features Tucson and TUSD, received almost no coverage in the Arizona Daily Star. It is almost as if they are trying to prove the conspiracy theories about SALC and Pedicone, especially since in almost two years of tenure, John Pedicone has received no criticism by Tucson’s only daily newspaper. Racism is one thing, but reality is another, and TUSD is broke, students are leaving, and any national coverage of TUSD involves segregation, racism, censorship, and banned books.
