On Alternatives to Busing.
Glazer, Nathan
According to the author, people who favor compulsory assignment of children to schools on the basis of race base their position on the assumptions that Americans will make no progress toward an integrated society except under compulsion, and that the proof of an integrated society is the even distribution of minorities throughout society. In this paper, the author offers arguments and statistics to refute these two assumptions. He presents demographic evidence of a recent trend toward greater racial equality and asserts that this trend makes radical solutions like compulsory busing unnecessary. And the fact that members of many racial and ethnic groups tend to cluster together voluntarily, he argues, shows the folly of striving for the equal distribution of minority groups throughout our society.
