A video with excerpts of the TUSD board meeting can be found at:
What part of ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL does TUSD not understand... and how ironic that it takes ILLEGAL meetings to attack the Latino community, from killing MAS to closing our schools.
Mark Stegeman, how do you teach the "The Tempest" without mentioning issues of "race, class or oppression"?
And more to the point, why is TUSD, where you are in charge, outlawing any discussion of "race, class or oppression."???
Once again there is a huge communications problem at TUSD regarding the truth..
Just as Pedicone played dumb regarding any book ban, Stegeman conveniently ignores the fact, which was captured in an audio recording even, that asst. superintendent Dr. Morado forbade Curtis Acosta from using The Tempest since it deals with issues of "race, class, and oppression."
It was also strange to see Pedicone's Cabinet laughing behind his back as he spoke about failing schools...
John Pedicone promised us a public forum to discuss MAS on May 3rd, 2011... over a year later, nothing, no forums, and no more MAS classes that are federally protected
