The federal U.S. District Court judge in Tucson, judge David Bury, who denied the request to reinstate the MAS program, said that the elimination of the courses didn't intentionally segregate students, nor did it tip the racial or ethnic balance of students in any TUSD school.
The ruling by Judge Bury was backed by Special Master Willis Hawley, who was in charge of overseeing the development and implementation of TUSD's plan to bring its schools into racial balance.
So do you believe the judge? Do you believe that getting rid of the Mexican-American studies is a good way to desegregate schools and bring unity? Do you think this move to eliminate the MAS program in schools is racist?
