“Precious Knowledge” aired on the PBS series “Independent Lens” in May. This is a must see film by Ari Luis Palos and Eren Isabel McGinnis of Dos Vatos Productions. Do check it out. Here’s the description: At Tucson High School, ethnic studies programs have improved graduation rates among Latino students. But some state politicians think ethnic studies promote “racial solidarity” and anti-Americanism. When books are banned and the programs eliminated, teachers and students fight back in a modern civil rights struggle.
