School Desegregation in Milwaukee.
Community Service Bulletin, v2 nl Jun 1976
In this document several questions about the meaning of court ordered school desegregation in Milwaukee are addressed. Racial and demographic factors and educational policies preceding the 1976 court decision that the Milwaukee schools were illegally segregated are reviewed chronologically. The content of the court decision is discussed. Other important school desegregation court cases since 1954 are outlined, and the methods used by the Department of Health, Education and Welfare to enforce these decisions are described. The experiences of Boston, Minneapolis and other cities whose schools were recently desegregated are examined. A list of key factors in successful desegregation, compiled from experiences in about 25 cities, is included. In addition, integration plans used by other cities are reviewed. A definition of terms, texts of voluntary desegregation plans and court documents, lists of school board directors, committee members, and other sources of information are appended to this bulletin.
