BALTIMORE BEGINS TO INTEGRATE SCHOOLS.
HOLMGREN, EDWARD
THE HISTORY OF INTEGRATION IN THE BALTIMORE PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS PRESENTED. RACIAL IMBALANCE IN THE SCHOOLS WAS REGARDED AS EDUCATIONALLY UNDESIRABLE. A BRIEF FLURRY OF PROTEST OCCURRED WHEN THE FIRST NEGRO CHILDREN WERE TRANSPORTED TO WHITE SCHOOLS. THIS WAS FOLLOWED BY AN ABORTIVE ATTEMPT TO STRIP THE SCHOOL BOARD OF ITS AUTONOMY AND PLACE ITS BUDGET AND SPENDING PREROGATIVES BACK IN THE CITY COUNCIL. COMMUNITY SUPPORT OF THE SCHOOL BOARD PREVENTED THIS THREAT FROM BECOMING A REALITY.
