School Desegregation: The Role of the Courts and Means of Achievement.
Hyde, Alison A.
NASSP Bulletin, v78 n565 p29-37 Nov 1994
Examines the courts' role in desegregating American schools in the 40 years since "Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas" and discusses reasons why desegregation is still a desirable goal for public schools. Having recognized its limited power to end segregation during the 1970s, the U.S. Supreme Court is gradually relinquishing control of desegregation policy to local school systems. Effective social change cannot be mandated. (13 references) (MLH)
