From Our Readers: The Truth about Boston School Desegregation.
O'Donnell, Mark D.
Equity & Excellence in Education, v33 n2 p103-105 Sep 2000
Clarifies some myths that dominated the story of Boston's school desegregation since 1974 and the Judge involved (Judge Garrity). Myths include: Judge Garrity ruined an excellent school system; busing caused great disruption throughout Boston; busing created white flight from Boston; and Judge Garrity was a heartless adjudicator who cared little about how busing disrupted students' lives.
