Question of the Day
Among the Arizona schools that could be affected by the law are three charter schools run by Chicanos Por La Causa, a nonprofit group that bills itself as the state’s largest community development corporation.
But spokeswoman Amanda Roberson said she doubted the schools would be in danger of losing funding. Schools that violate the law would lose a share of state education funds.
“We don’t think right now it’s going to apply to us,” said Ms. Roberson. “The language is very extreme - I mean, it talks about overthrowing the government - and we don’t think it applies to us.”
Mr. Horne has argued that the curriculum prods Hispanic students into believing they are oppressed by whites. He pointed to a 2006 talk by Hispanic activist Dolores Huerta, who told students, “Republicans hate Latinos.”
He also cited the use of textbooks such as “Oppressed America,” which quotes a Hispanic activist saying that Chicanos should “kill the gringo.” Another textbook, he says, “The Mexican American Heritage,” promotes the idea of Aztlan, the five Southwestern states that activists say should be returned to Mexican control.
