Apparently several of these readers are ignorant about the fact that undocumented "illegal" immigrants make the American economy run, and it has always been that way. Educate yourself about the American history of immigration. If it weren't for many thousands of undocumented immigrants, you wouldn't have fresh produce, meat or other groceries in your store. Educate yourself about the reality of "illegal" immigrants before you complain about them, and you'll find out they contribute much more to the American way of life than you realize. Americans have always judged immigrants and made them out to be horrible, all the while profiting from their hard, backbreaking work. And if you haven't heard, other states have used MAS as a model for educating minority students and improving their grades and graduation rates.
There is absolutely NO evidence that the MAS teaches students to hate white people or hate their own country. That is ABSURD. That is, of course, part of the insane spin that white TUSD leaders put on a program that is overwhelmingly successful academically. They have no other way to get rid of it. If you know anything about the history of the Southwest, you would know that the Mexican people and Native American tribes ARE the history of the area. This isn't about liberals and conservatives---it's about history. You probably learned your version of whitewashed history and you're determined to stick to it. The rest of us want our students to learn the truth and succeed, without lies and paranoia being heaped on top of their schoool work.
