Meeting the Courts' Research Needs.
von Euler, Mary
This paper discusses some of the ways in which social science research can be useful to the courts in school desegregation litigation. A discussion of specific legal cases is used to illustrate areas where the courts have needed social science research. Several areas that can be analyzed by social scientists include: (1) housing segregation, (2) state and school officials' actions that may represent intentional school segregation, (3) racial and economic segregation of housing in metropolitan areas, (4) the interdistrict effects of official discrimination, and (5) resegregation. This paper does not reveal all of the many uses and misuses that courts have made of social science evidence. A list of references includes all court cases and acts cited. (Author/AM)
