The Tucson Unified School District is asking people for feedback on a proposed curriculum of its controversial culturally relevant courses.
It’s been a year and a half since TUSD shut down its Mexican American Studies classes, after they were deemed in violation of state law. Now, under a federally mandated plan to get TUSD out from under a desegregation order, the district could teach MAS classes again.
Officials said the classes won’t be the same, but they would teach literature, government and history from a Mexican American perspective.
On the TUSD website, officials posted a tentative high school curriculum for the classes and curriculum for African American Studies classes
The online feedback form asks people to rank the curriculum they reviewed on a five-point scale of effectiveness with the option to leave a comment.
The district will be accepted comments until July 8.
