In Southern Arizona, there is not only a shortage of teachers, but also a shortage of those who know how to teach in the tradition of Mexican-American Studies (MAS). Since HB 2281 (outlawing MAS in Tucson Unified School District) was ruled unconstitutional, we knew we needed to develop the next generation of teachers trained using MAS approaches. More than curriculum, MAS includes how teachers engage with their students and the larger community. Research shows that students who take MAS courses perform better on the state tests and graduate at a higher rate, yet local school districts are struggling to find MAS-trained teachers.
