One of the most important parts of the federal desegregation court order on Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) is the new Unitary Status Plan (USP) which is being worked on right now.
What is important now and how can get involved is to go to the following link and comment at the bottom of the page and select Section V.C. as the section you are providing feedback on. These comments go straight to the Special Master and WILL be taken into account when he makes his final decision.
The Special Master Willis Hawley is a university professor and loves details, so if you would like to write a longer message to him with references and citations you can do so by sending your message via email to [email protected] or via USPS to USP Comments, P.O. Box 41358, Tucson, AZ 85717-1358.
Remember, however, that the deadline is this Wednesday at 11:59pm.
Every professor, postdoc, graduate student, teacher, student and parent out there from around the country who is interested in education, Ethnic Studies, Chicano Studies, and the future of educating Latinos should submit a comment. It can be as simple as saying that you want MAS and its director to be returned. Also demand a RETURN OF BILINGUAL EDUCATION. Many of those messages will speak volumes, and will make difference!
