I Support School Integration, But...: "Sheff V. O'Neill" More than Ten Years Later and No End in Sight
Sekou, Bilal
Equity & Excellence in Education, v42 n2 p97-113 2009
On July 9, 1996, the Connecticut Supreme Court issued its landmark school desegregation decision, "Sheff v. O'Neill". More than a decade later, Hartford's schoolchildren are as segregated as they were when the case was first filed in 1989. Based on data from a statewide survey and data collected from two focus groups of white parents collected shortly after the State's High Court ruling, this investigation reveals that the racial attitudes of white parents were, from the beginning, a major obstacle to a successful resolution of the "Sheff" impasse. (Contains 3 figures.)
