A Mexican-American studies course in Arizona's Tucson district violates a new state law prohibiting classes "designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group," says outgoing state schools superintendent Tom Horne. The district should face a loss of state funding for keeping the program, according to Horne, who is the state's new attorney general. However, Tucson school officials support the class and have expressed their commitment to complying with the state law. Final action rests with the new state superintendent.
