A Shakespeare play forbidden in Tucson,Arizona.

Hardly a day goes by without one of those appalling news:
extract from the following article: salon.com/2012/01/13/whos_afraid_of_the_tempest/

Another notable text removed from Tucson’s classrooms is Shakespeare’s play “The Tempest.” In a meeting this week, administrators informed Mexican-American studies teachers to stay away from any units where “race, ethnicity and oppression are central themes,” including the teaching of Shakespeare’s classic in Mexican-American literature courses.

Can you believe it? What a shame!
