In 2014, College of Education faculty members Jeffrey Milem (now the education dean at the University of California, Santa Barbara), Nolan Cabrera, Ozan Jaquette, and Ron Marx published the article, Missing the (Student Achievement) Forest for All the (Political) Trees: Empiricism and the Mexican American Studies Controversy in Tucson in the American Educational Research Journal. The research article was based on the results of HB 2281, which eliminated Tucson Unified School District's Mexican American Studies program, arguing the curriculum was too political. We just got word the research article will receive a Social Policy Award for Best Article from the Society for Research on Adolescence. The award ceremony was held March 31, 2016, in Baltimore.
