AZ Schools Curriculum Condemns Hypocrisy and Lies in Declaration of Independence
The head of public schools in Tucson, Ariz. says the city’s schoolchildren will continue to be taught a “culturally relevant” curriculum that condemns the Declaration of Independence as full of “lies” and “hypocrisy” even after the state’s superintendent accused it of violating a state ban on ethnic studies classes.
In fact, he says they will expand it.
Superintendent H. D. Sanchez says that, regardless of what the state’s Department of Education says, a federal desegregation court order issued in 2013 requires the school to offer a “culturally relevant” curriculum. As a result, he says the district will expand the curriculum from three high schools in the district to seven.
An Arizona law, passed in 2010, bars schools from teaching courses that advocate ethnic solidarity over treating people as individuals, encourage resentment of particular groups or cultures or promote the overthrow of the United States government. The law was targeted at an ethnic studies program in Tucson which it forced to shut down in 2012. The law has thus far survived a federal court challenge, although oral arguments before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals are scheduled for next week.
Now, the Arizona Department of Education says Tucson is once again violating the law.
