Busing: A Moral Issue. Fastback Series, No. 7.
Ozmon, Howard; Craver, Sam
This report discusses the current school busing crisis, examines the history of busing, and looks into the future of busing. In discussing the current crisis the authors examine recent court cases mandating busing to achieve desegregation. They go back into history to trace the tradition of busing, to obtain facts and figures, and to look at past uses of busing to achieve desegregation. In looking to the future of busing they discuss conflicting reports as to the effects of busing and examine the moral issue of using busing as an expedient substitute for integrated housing or equal job opportunity.
