Court-Ordered Desegregation--The Fiscal Impact on Milwaukee Public Schools.
Moll, Emmett J.
A discussion of the fiscal impact of court-ordered desegregation on the Milwaukee (Wisconsin) public schools delineates the conditions and costs for the program from 1976 to 1979. The court order affected 75 percent of the district's students. In response the school district established a number of specialty schools and provided for the busing of almost 40,000 pupils. The costs of desegregation included bus transportation; the opening, equipping, and additional staffing of specialty schools; attorneys' fees; and human relations programs. The revenue needed to finance the plan came largely from two sources, the federal government and the state of Wisconsin. (Author/WD)
