Issues in School Desegregation Litigation

by Clifford P. Hooker - 1978

The contemporary judicial landscape is cluttered with school desegregation decrees, many of which are enmeshed in controversy. Both liability and remedy questions persist and new issues emerge as more desegregation orders are implemented. Is the practice to be corrected or eliminated sufficiently harmful to justify the consequent costs entailed in complying with the order? Is the state or the school district responsible for segregation in schools? Do school boards have an obligation to eliminate segregation regardless of its source? When has a school board fully complied with a court order? These troublesome questions and related issues are discussed in this chapter.
