From the comments to my recent post A Failure of Critical Pedagogy comes this video of a Tucson Unified School District board meeting in which a parent stood up and read from some of the books used in that district’s “Raza Studies” program, which I’ve covered before in Balkanization and Why I Keep Marxadelphia Around.
Watch this video, and listen to what the speaker has to say. Then listen to the response from the TUSD governing board member. Is he in denial, or just completely obtuse?
Do you want that taught to your kids? How do you feel about it being taught exclusively to students of hispanic descent?
