Like the state’s tough immigration law – which a federal judge put mostly on hold last summer – the new measure that Gov. Jan Brewer signed in May has sparked protests and legal action, as well as concerns about the future of education.

The law bans classes that promote the overthrow of the United States government and resentment toward a race or class of people. Also outlawed are courses designed primarily for students of a particular ethnic group and those that advocate ethnic solidarity rather than treat students as individuals.

Between SB1070 and this, how could anyone think that Arizona is run by a bunch of xenophobic morons?

It's so great to see how conservatives can take liberal ideas and twist them so they do something completely different than they are supposed to.

Conservatism is like the Rewind button. If someone were to hit the rewind button on this County's political and social history in the last 70 years, you would experience the conservative utopia.

........Someone hit the Rewind button in Arizona.

courses designed for students of a certain ethnic group... does that include, like, ESL classes? That sucks, keeps those people down.

Otherwise, it looks like it takes away state-sponsored racism which is ultimately a good thing.

"Hey, how can we ban ethnic studies classes? Let's just pass a law that bans classes that promote the overthrow of the government and, for some reason, include ethnic studies classes."

Actually I think the AZ government has a point. Government is pretty white and ethnic studies classes might empower minorities, effectively "overthrowing this government".

you and your tiny brain.

Oh my bad I forgot you had moved on from "Republican cheerleader" to "Libertarianism, brought to you by the Koch brothers and Glenn Beck".
