"Brown v. Board of Education" (1954): An Analysis of Policy Implementation, Outcomes, and Unintended Consequences
McCullough, Carla M.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Loyola Marymount University
"Brown v. Board of Education" (1954) was a significant court case fought to provide equal educational opportunities for African-American students. Though the case was fought with good intentions, there may have been unintended consequences that occurred due to the policy implementation. The purpose of this research was to explore the policy, its implementation, and assess the extent to which the goals of the original policy were met. This study used a mixed-methods approach and was set within one large urban school district. The qualitative portion of the study included interviews with a small group of educators who were directly impacted by "Brown" and its implementation. The data from both the interviews and the selected focus schools indicated that the initial goals of "Brown," equal educational opportunities and integrated schooling, were not met. This research provided information from key areas that may serve as a guide to help make future policy implementation successful.
