Arizona education chief moves to ban ethnic studies in Tucson schools – CNN.com

What is the country turning into? Is this really what the Republicans and Christians are pushing for America? If so, I am really scared for Americans.

(CNN) — Arizona schools superintendent John Huppenthal has told the Tucson district to stop teaching its controversial Mexican-American studies program or face losing $15 million in annual state aid under a new law, he said Tuesday.

Huppenthal told CNN he was backing this week’s decision by exiting state superintendent Tom Horne giving the state’s second largest district 60 days to comply with a new 2011 law banning certain ethnic studies programs in public schools.

Horne is now Arizona’s new attorney general, and Huppenthal was sworn in Monday as the newly elected Arizona schools superintendent. Both men are Republicans.
