Racial Ideology and the Sanctity of the Neighborhood School in Chicago
Danns, Dionne
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v40 n1 p64-75 Mar 2008
Superintendent James Redmond created a desegregation plan for Chicago Public Schools in 1967, which affected a limited amount of students, but caused great uproar. This article examines the numerous White responses in opposition to busing including those that appear legitimate, such as a desire to maintain neighborhood schools. However, given the history of neighborhood and school segregation in Chicago, the legitimacy of words alone cannot be taken at face value. The larger context must be explored in order to better understand White opposition to busing.
