Stegeman Out, Cuevas In

Posted By on Thu, Aug 25, 2011 at 9:00 AM

Mark Stegeman was ousted from his position as president of the TUSD governing board Tuesday night, four days after he testified at an administrative hearing as an expert witness for the state that not only does he believe the ethnic studies classes violate parts of the anti-ethnic studies law, but that the Mexican American Studies classes display cult-like behaviors.

Governing board member Miguel Cuevas was named president after a 3-2 vote to oust Stegeman. Stegeman and Hicks voted no. After the vote, Hicks introduced a motion to replace the clerk of the board — Judy Burns — with Stegeman. The motion died. End of story.

It's old news now, but in case you weren't there, you can see how the vote took place in a video below made by Three Sonorans' David Abie Morales.

Morales was also at the Democrats of Greater Tucson luncheon on Monday where Mexican American Studies director Sean Arce spoke on the beleaguered program. He was also asked to give his opinion on Stegeman's accusations that the classes are cult-like. Video of Arce's response is a must see:
