[BACKGROUND: MAS was group of courses taught specifically to Hispanic/Latino children along a curriculum aligned with La Raza, MEChA, and their concerted effort to reclaim "Aztlan" ("The Race's" homeland that happens to be the southwest U.S./North America/all of N and S America depending on who you're talking with). The TUSD students were being taught that they were oppressed by white men, that they could be part of a great revolution to take back control and independence over Aztlan, and that any Hispanic or Latino was not a Machismo because they are "vendidos" or traitors, fitting in with the white man's society.

|When MAS was ended by TUSD|
From the 2/14/2013 Arizona Daily ("Red") Star: "Former TUSD teacher's Mexican American Studies suit dismissed":
"John Ward filed the defamation lawsuit in 2011, claiming false statements made by the then-director of Mexican American Studies Sean Arce and curriculum specialist Jose Gonzalez damaged his reputation as an educator."
|TUSD school board meeting when MAS was ended.|
As the teacher of record, Ward was determined to be involved in the instruction and contended Romero and Arce were "not teaching American history but rather were proselytizing a political point of view to the students."
"He claimed to have heard racist comments, denial of American sovereignty in the Southwest United States, advocacy for illegal immigration and impugning of police officers and Anglo teachers as racists."

So, how do Liberals like to work?
- Try to indoctrinate young minds. Truth is to be avoided and replaced with emotionally provocative rhetoric.
- Play really really dirty if you are challenged. Truth is to be avoided and replaced with emotionally attacking rhetoric.
- Get a newspaper to say that the suit was "dismissed", thereby implying that it had no merit and an out of court settlement was not reached. Truth is to be avoided and replaced with emotionally soothing rhetoric.
