Arizona Governor Bans Ethnic Studies Classes

There is one state that is still American.

Via Politico:

Arizona GOP Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a law banning the state’s schools from teaching ethnic studies classes.

Brewer signed the bill Tuesday that targets Chicano studies programs currently being taught in Tucson schools.

Proponents of the bill argue that the classes are designed only for students of a particular race and promote ethnic solidarity over community integration.

“Public school pupils should be taught to treat and value each other as individuals and not be taught to resent or hate other races or classes of people,” the text of the bill reads.

The law prohibits the teaching of any classes that promote “the overthrow of the United States government,” “resentment toward a race or class of people,” “are designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group” or “advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals.”
