Democracy Now, a daily TV/radio news program, recently hosted a debate about the Tucson Unified School District book ban, which included Native American authors, and end of the Mexican American Studies program.

The debate was between Arizona Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal, who ruled that the TUSD Mexican American Studies program violated a state law, and Richard Martinez, the attorney representing teachers and students trying to save the Mexican American Studies program.
