A Sad State of Affairs

Arizona passes bill banning ethnic studies programs in state schools.

"The bill, which passed 32-26 in the state House, had been approved by the Senate a day earlier. It now goes to Gov. Jan Brewer for her signature.

The new bill would make it illegal for a school district to teach any courses that promote the overthrow of the U.S. government, promote resentment of a particular race or class of people, are designed primarily for students of a particular ethnic group or "advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals."
It's not sad that Arizona legislature passed such a bill, but it's sad that it was necessary to pass such a bill to ban such outright bigotry and sedition - from a public school system. Your tax dollars at work.
"State Superintendent for Public Instruction Tom Horne called passage in the state House a victory for the principle that education should unite, not divide students of differing backgrounds."
Augustine Romero, director of Tuscon Unified School District's ethnic-studies department will be very upset at this new law. You see, he directs a "$2.6 million "ethnic studies" program heavy on 'race-based resentment' of white people, and romantic portrayals of mass murdering sociopath che guevara, and brutal dictator fidel castro.

Up until today, Mr. Romero was still hard at it.

And they say the TEA partiers are bigots and racists...
