A bill under consideration by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer would end ethnic-studies courses in the state's K-12 public and charter schools. State schools chief Tom Horne, who supports the bill, says such classes serve to segregate students and target ethnic groups for resentment, but others say it could exacerbate the controversy over how the state treats its Hispanic residents amid the recent passage of stricter state immigration enforcement. Brewer must sign or reject the bill by May 11.
