I'm happy to announce this year's NACCS Tejas Foco Conference taking place at
Texas A & M University College Station. Among other influences—including the attack on Mexican American Studies in the Tucson Unified School District in Arizona—Texas' (re)birth of Xican@/Mexican American Studies Movement happened here with our NACCS Tejas Foco scholars and community. We're connected across the state, continue to work with and lead the REST Coalition that defeated the racist textbook that was under consideration by the SBOE #RejectTheText, conduct research, write books and textbooks, co-construct curriculum, grow our own teachers and otherwise celebrate this opportunity to be a part of something that is at once so much bigger than ourselves and incredibly nurturing and fulfilling. So please join us if you want to help advance the cause for curricular inclusion in our state's classrooms. Open to the public. All are welcome.
Register for conference HERE.
Note: Papers deadline for NACCS Tejas Foco 2017 has been extended to Dec 8, 5pm. Please consider submitting a proposal (paper, panel, roundtable, etc.)
