Carlos Galindo protests Monday, May 9, 2011 outside the Arizona Department of Education in Phoenix, along with other supporters of an ethnic studies program in the Tucson Unified School District. About a dozen people showed up Monday and held signs accusing the department of a policy of attacking Arizona Latinos after former school's chief Tom Horne declared the program a violation of state law and called for its elimination hours before his term ended and he became Arizona Attorney General.
