With fewer than six weeks before classes resume, the Tucson Unified School District is still hoping to offer culturally relevant courses in the fall.

It's a lofty goal considering the curriculum is still in the revision phase and will need to go through a public review before it can be adopted by the school board.

The board would also determine when to offer the courses.

The curriculum, which will replace the controversial Mexican American Studies courses, will be directed at 11th- and 12th-graders and cover literature, government and American history. Each class is offered from either the Mexican-American perspective or the African-American perspective, though students will have the option of taking traditional classes in each of the subjects.
