Precious Knowledge

The Mexican American Studies Program in the Tucson Unified School District of Arizona was a model of success with 95 per cent of its enrolled students graduating from high school. But state politicians and local officials, riding a wave of anti-immigrant and racist sentiment, move to ban Mexican American Studies. This sets off a firestorm of discussion by students and teachers, who take their fight to the state capitol, holding protests, testifying before lawmakers, and inviting lawmakers to visit them in the classroom.

Discussion will follow the documentary film screening

Free and open to the public
