It's Not the Distance, "It's the Niggers." Comments on the Controversy Over School Busing.
National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Legal Defense and Educational Fund, New York, NY.
This paper focuses on the political nature of the present busing controversy. It is felt that the proposed moratorium on busing threatens gains which have been made in previous years through institutional and judicial enforcement of the Civil Rights Act in providing equal educational opportunities to all children. The advantages and disadvantages of busing are discussed, with particular attention being paid to how the busing issue is dealt with in several states across the nation. In addition, an appendix includes charts on: (1) busing costs for the years 1953-1968; (2) pupil transportation by region; and, (3) cost of student transportation in individual school districts where desegregation occurred.
