Discipline coming for TUSD ethnic studies walkouts

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Students who participated in walkouts from school to protest suspension of Mexican-American studies will be disciplined, according to Tucson Unified School District representatives.

Students who have participated in walkouts or other activities that violate TUSD policies can face detention, suspension, or if the activity is repeated, more severe penalties.

The TUSD board suspended Mexican-American studies classes after it was determined by a judge that the classes violate state law.
