Twenty-Five Years after "Brown v. Board": A Plaintiff's View.
Twenty-six years ago, racial segregation imposed by law was declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in "Brown v. Board of Education." This paper discusses the historical background of Brown and what has followed after it. The impact of Brown and other court decisions on education is explored together with a discussion of the transition to and some benefits of integration. Finally, the paper discusses school issues in which the judiciary has had an important role, including bilingualism, sex fairness, and handicapped children. (Author/LD)
