Precious Knowledge Trailer from Ari Palos on Vimeo.

These past few weeks I’ve been meeting with former students of this Mexican-American studies program to see what I can do on behalf of the University to support the retention of these programs. Today, an audit began of Tucson Unified School District that will cost Arizona tax payers $170,000 to make sure that schools are compliant with HB2281, which banned ethnic studies across the state.

This film, Precious Knowledge, premieres here in Tucson this Thursday at the Fox Theatre. and I highly encourage anyone in the area to check it out.
