The superintendent blames the class for inspiring students to overthrow the American government, which has been recorded as actually happening a whole whopping zero times ever. That’s right. But, required reading for the class includes a book that calls America “occupied” as Mexico used to own a southwestern region including Arizona and California.
But don’t listen to us – this student, interviewed by CNN, says it best:
“I get really emotional because this class helped me a lot,” she said, becoming tearful. “We’re a family. We’re one, and it’s teaching us we can make a difference in this country. I don’t want this class to be taken away.”
Eleven educators have sued the superintendent and school board, calling the law “anti-Hispanic,” with the controversial anti-immigration law still looming on the state.
We attempted to contact Mexico’s Offensive Occupation Force and received no comment.
