XITO is a collective that consists of former MAS teachers that was created after TUSD banned Mexican American Studies. All of these teachers were involved in the federal lawsuit to save ethnic studies in Arizona.
XITO statement on TUSD’s board agenda this evening:
Our collective feels that any discussion by the TUSD Governing Board in regard to Mexican American Studies is premature.
Out of respect and deference for the plaintiffs, witnesses, and former students and teachers of MAS who were actively involved in the seven year legal battle, we believe Judge Tashima should be given the opportunity to announce his remedies before any action is taken.
