Arizona Ethnic Studies Classes Banned, Teachers With Accents Can No Longer Teach English


The Buzz: Arizona's new immigration law is just about crime, its supporters say, but given that the state's new education policy equates ethnic studies programs with high treason, they may not be using the commonly accepted definition of "crime." Under the ban, sent to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer by the state legislature Thursday, schools will lose state funding if they offer any courses that "promote the overthrow of the U.S. government, promote resentment of a particular race or class of people, are designed primarily for students of a particular ethnic group or advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals."

Just when I thought Arizona had reach its limit in stupidity, I take a short break for OJ, open a screen, and cast my eyes upon this idiocy.

Fortunately, I no longer have to be worried about working in Arizona. Between my tan and my accent, I am completely unqualified.
