Re: “A Night of Regret: The Arrest of TUSD's Former MAS Director Brings Contrition, Discussion on Gender Violence

Thank you, Ms. Herreras, for a thoughtful article addressing many sides of the issue. None of these issues will go away soon, and need to be addressed. Sometimes, what is devastating can be a blessing.

First of all, the Mexican AMERICAN Studies classes were teaching American history. Secondly, they were not funded by the state, but desegregation funds from the federal government and would have no bearing on the closing of schools. What caused the closing of schools is too many schools with low enrollment due to many factors, including students transferring to other schools (public, charter and private) because of a school's low performance and reputation and schools that are not big enough to support the number of students needed to keep the school running. The only way to have kept the schools open and running as they are now is to raise the amount funded to schools by the state or get more students. Since neither have been possible, Tucson Unified had no other choice, but to close schools.
