Tucson Ethnic Studies on Daily Show

Arizona's Public Education in Trouble 
Al Madrigal speaks with TUSD Board member Hicks who has some alarmingly uneducated and unsubstantiated remarks about not just Tucson Mexican American Studies but also Rosa Parks, who Hicks refers to as "Rosa Clark." Ethnic Studies Educator Curtis Acosta presents a compelling case for Mexican American Studies and teaching students to become critical of history.
