High [School's] Mexican American Studies Program has become a national model of educational success, with 93 percent of enrolled students graduating from high school.

Jan Brewer have] shut the program down because they believe the students are being indoctrinated with dangerous ideology and embracing destructive ethnic chauvinism"--Container
