AZ forced Tucson to drop the Mexican American studies program

I think it's misleading to say that in 2012 "Tucson" "votes" to ban the Mexican American studies program. AZ Superintendent of Schools and now Attorney General Tom Horne prosecuted the Tucson school district for offering the program, and threatened to cut off all state funds. In response, the school district (not the people of Tucson) were forced to drop the program in order to maintain state funding. But the onus is on Tom Horne and the AZ legislature, not "Tucson," which has demonstrated overwhelming local support for the program.
