Judge rejects request to reinstate TUSD class

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A federal judge has rejected a request to reinstate the Tucson Unified School District’s suspended ethnic studies classes.

The request was filed last month by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund on behalf of the Latino plaintiffs in TUSD’s decades-old desegregation case.

The Arizona Daily Star reported Monday that the ruling by U.S. District Judge David Bury was backed by Special Master Willis Hawley.

Hawley was charged with overseeing the development and implementation of TUSD’s plan to bring its schools into racial balance.

The plaintiffs argued that the courses are a critical component of a court-ordered document that the district is currently operating under.

However, both the judge and the special master agree that the discontinuation of the class doesn’t violate the order.
