It was bad enough that the state of Arizona forced the Tucson School District to end their ethnic studies classes (which had 700 students enrolled).

Now, “Salon” reports that the District is taking it a step further and banning certain books from schools that are related to the topics studied in the class, including Rethinking Columbus, “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” by Brazilian educator Paolo Freire and “Occupied America: A History of Chicanos” by Rodolfo Acuña.

Those are just a few of the banned books.

What in the world is the District leadership thinking?
