WHAT THE SUPREME COURT SAID....
LEFLAR, ROBERT A.
PRESENTED WERE ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT AROSE WHEN THE SUPREME COURT MADE THE DECISION ON THE INTEGRATION OF SCHOOLS. THE DECISION APPLIED TO ALL STATE-SUPPORTED EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. THE AUTHORITY OF STATE LAWS WAS QUESTIONED, BUT NO STATE LAW REQUIRING OR PERMITTING SEGREGATION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS WAS NOW VALID. THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR INITIATING SPECIFIC PLANS FOR COMPLIANCE WITH THE SUPREME COURT'S DECISION WAS IN THE HANDS OF THE OFFICIALS OF EACH SCHOOL DISTRICT. WHETHER CONGRESS COULD SUPERSEDE THE DECISION WAS QUESTIONED, THE ANSWER WAS THAT IT COULD NOT LAWFULLY SET ASIDE THE CONSTITUTIONAL REQUIREMENT, BUT IT COULD ENACT IMPLEMENTING STATUTES WHICH COULD SUPERSEDE IN WHOLE OR IN PART THE AUTHORITY GIVEN TO FEDERAL DISTRICT COURTS.
