While approximately fifty percent of the Mexican American high school students were dropping out of school, the Tuscon’s ethnic studies program became an educational success around the nation, with an average of ninety percent of the student graduating from the high school level and approximately 85 percent qualifying for college level education ("Watch Precious Knowledge Online | Vimeo On Demand"). However, the lawmakers in Arizona tried to close down the program since they had a notion that the students were being indoctrinated with some malicious ideologies and embracing some destructive ethnic chauvinism. The documentary was timely since the nation turned its focus towards the wave of anti-immigration legislation that was to be established in Arizona state, with other subsequent states planning to follow suit. Moreover, the lawmakers have recently passed legislation that gave the State Superintendent the unilateral power to abolish the studies that were based on ethnicity ("Watch Precious Knowledge Online | Vimeo On Demand").
