In the January interview, AZ school chief Huppenthal also said Latino students are capable being anything they want, including, in his words, “God forbid, lawyers.”
From the interview:
I grew up in South Tucson. So when I go down to Tucson Unified School District, I’m going home. And Marcelina Lucero taught me long division in third grade. Stella Peralta defeated me every week in the spelling bee. I know these kids are sharp kids, that they’re fully capable of being architects and doctors and, God forbid, lawyers.
