The Quality of Inequality: Urban and Suburban Public Schools.
Daly, Charles U., Ed.
This collection of conference papers deals with issues concerning remediation of inequality between the urban and suburban schools. Arthur Mann gives an historical account of the effects that public education have had on immigrant groups in the past. Arthur Wise argues that the inequalities in urban education are unconstitutional and cites four sets of Supreme Court cases in support. Phillip Kurland's paper predicts that the Court will tackle the problem soon, but opposes intervention, as Court edicts are seen by him to be unenforceable; this paper concludes that States should take over this responsibility. Julian Levi, on the other hand, looks to the Supreme Court, as the latter can declare local tax systems invalid and order States to implement a more equitable system. Otto Davis foresees the passing of local control of schools should the Court void the property tax as a means of support for schools. (KG)
