This booklet is comprised of the following: (i) School desegregation law: recent developments (by J. Harold Flannery), dealing with several threshold questions such as: What is illegal school segregation? What must be done about it and by whom? What will be the role of the courts after desegregation? (ii) School desegregation--the past five years, a staff study by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, discusses legal developments in the area of school integration which have occurred in the past five years, with particular emphasis on the constitutional duty of school officials to take affirmative steps to desegregate dual school systems and the broadening concept of de jure segregation; (iii) Metropolitan school desegregation: evolving law (by Norman J. Chachkin), focuses on the isolation of racial and ethnic minority children in the schools, school finance, adequate teacher preparation and training, and overemphasis on "intellectuality"; (iv) The Richmond School Decision (by Robert R. Merhige, Jr.), extracts from the court decision ordering the creation of a metropolitan school district in order to afford equal education to children of Richmond city and Henrico and Chesterfield counties; (v) Illinois rules against segregation (by Michael J.
