  2. HB 2281 prohibits schools from offering courses at any grade level that advocate ethnic solidarity promote overthrow of the US government or cater to specific ethnic groupsregulations which will dismantle the states popular Mexican-American studies programs..Much like Arizonas new immigration law this ethnic studies ban is political interest dressed up to look like education reform. The bill was passed largely because of State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Hornes personal distaste for the Tuscon Unified School Districts Chicano studies program in which 3 percent of the districts 55 000 students participate.
