Tom Horne's Attack Against Mexican-American Studies Continues

Posted By on Sat, May 12, 2012 at 1:30 PM

On Thursday, May 10, our illustrious anti-Mexican-American-studies state Attorney General Tom Horne filed a nine-page intervention complaint and 12-page motion to intervene with U.S. District Court Judge David C. Bury, saying that the Unitary Status Plan being developed by the court-appointed special master had better not violate state law.

The Attorney General, on behalf of the State of Arizona (“State”), moves for permission to intervene in this action on a limited basis as a matter of right to ensure that the Special Master’s proposed curricular revisions for in-depth ethnic studies courses in the Unitary Status Plan (“USP”) do not violate state law. The Court is requested to permit the State to intervene under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 24(a)(2), because any implementation of ethnic studies courses by the Tucson Unified School District No. 1 (“TUSD”) pursuant to the USP in violation of state law would unconstitutionally usurp the State’s right to administer its laws. In the alternative, the Court is requested to grant permissive intervention pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 24(b)(1)(B), because the State has a common question of law or fact regarding the proposed ethnic studies courses that may be proposed in the new USP.

One MAS supporter mentioned Horne's amazing timing of his filing—Mexican Mother's Day. These Mexican Mother's Day filings have one goal: to give Horne leverage when it comes to ethnic studies in the Unitary Status Plan.
