Session title:

The Tucson 2011 Suspension of the Mexican American Studies Program: An Analysis of the Role of Research in Addressing Social Justice Struggles Tied to Ethnic Studies Curricula

Education Researchers Explore the Role of Research and its Applications in Current Policy

On the basis of research supporting the teaching of ethnic studies curricula, the AERA Council released two resolutions in February urging the reinstatement of the suspended Mexican American Studies program in Tucson, Arizona, and the repeal of legislation enacted by the Arizona legislature that limited the teaching of ethnic studies in the state. Led by AERA President Arnetha F. Ball and Social Justice Action Committee chair Richard P. Duran, this session explores the research behind the resolutions.
