Mariachi's in U.S. schools

I'm back, but way behind in the news.....

As a warm-up, there's this story about Mariachi classes in public schools.

In my native Austin, several high school's had mariachi bands back in the late 80s and early 90s. In elementary school, I remember putting on Cinco de Mayo presentations for our parents and learning to do dances that are now referred to as 'ballet folklorico'. Nevermind that Cinco de Mayo is almost a non-holiday in Mexico.
