Why Mexican American Studies?

Research shows that Mexican American Studies courses lead to improved:

  • standardized test scores;
  • graduation rates;
  • college attendance rates; and
  • academic mindsets.

MAS is much more than just a text or any number of books. It is a belated clarion-call to give children a fuller and truer sense of history. It is also a way for schools to give proof positive about the immense contribution of Mexicans and Mexican Americans to who we are as a country.
