The Impact of Court-Ordered Desegregation: A Defendant's View.
Bennett, David A.
This paper analyzes the impact of court-ordered school desegregation on the Milwaukee, Wisconsin school system. Discussed is the history of the 1976 case that prompted court action, including development and implementation of the first year's plan and community involvement in the second year's plan. Next, the progress of litigation since the suit was filed is analyzed. This includes the district court's role, the relationship between the court and the school system, and response from the educational establishment. Finally, the impact of school desegregation on top-level school administrators and principals is reviewed. The paper concludes that the common impact on all elements of the Milwaukee community was acceleration of activity and change. (Author/LD)
