Chomsky in Tucson & Forbidden Curricula

If I were on the Tucson Unified School District Governing Board, I'd be quaking in my boots. The world's leading intellectual, Noam Chomsky, will be in Tucson on Feb 7-8 and he has something to say about the recent banning of Mexican American Studies and also the banning of the MAS books.

Seem like its time for another national conference on Hate, Censorship and Forbidden Curricula.

Stay tuned.

  1. I lived in AZ before. To be honest, I wasn't here when everything started with dumping the Mexican-American Studies program in the Tucson Unified School District. I was kind of out of the loop, but I'm here NOW.

    TUSD, try as they might, can say they did it for the money... until they start banning books.

    I am collecting the books recently banned by TUSD to distribute free to the students at the high schools in the district.

    Fight ignorance with knowledge, take a stand in defense of diversity, and sponsor a banned book.
