Precious Knowledge is a documentary that portrays the one of the final years of the highly successful but controversial Mexican American Studies Program at Tucson High School.

The filmmaker, Eren McGinnis, will be introducing the documentary and talking a little about why she chose to make the documentary; the peer-led discussion will focus on the struggles that ethnic studies departments have been facing in recent years and how important they are not just to the students but to an entire campus community.
