Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal is confronted by a Mexican American Studies teacher in a parking lot.

"Your action will deny her the opportunity to learn about her culture, about her past within the school system," the teacher says after he introduces Huppenthal to his daughter. Korina, the teacher's daughter, is one of the plaintiffs in the Save Ethnic Studies lawsuit against Huppenthal.
