The Increased Role of Federal and State Governments in Civil Rights Issues Affecting Education.
Bailey, Stephen K.
Increasing pressure by state governments to end racial discrimination and defacto school segregation in public schools is predicted. Deeply ingrained American prejudice and Congressional racalcitrance have so far hindered progress in this area and, in fact, schools are more segregated now than they were at the time of the Brown decision. The white suburban noose around the inner city contributes further toward hampering solutions to metropolitan problems. However, recent legislation and judicial actions on the state level will establish new patterns which will generate movement "to mitigate the effects in schools of racial discrimination and defacto segregation."
