Transcript of Brown vs. Board of Edu

“Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Sir Winston Churchill Nashville, TN Destined Towards Re-Segregation? History Brown and thirteen other parents tried to enroll their children in the local "white schools" in the summer of 1950 Not the first case to challenge "separate but equal"
Schools were segregated. -NAACP's chief counsel, Thurgood Marshall argued that separate school systems for blacks and whites were inherently unequal.
This case was lost at the state level.
-Brown and the NAACP appealed to the Supreme Court on October 1, 1951 and their case was combined with other cases that challenged school segregation in South Carolina, Virginia, and Delaware.
The Supreme Court first heard the case on December 9, 1952, but failed to reach a decision. The Brown Family Time Line CONS Present Day Time Line PROS Conclusion Team Brown Suburban Parent - Sept 2012 STATS 2007- Little Rock Desegregation Silver Dollar. AMS/AMI/IMC/MACTE Certified Teachers

May 31, 1955, the Justices handed down a plan to proceed with desegregation with "all deliberate speed." EQUALITY when it came to education

The "White Flight

Disruption of educational process
for both black and white students Little Rock, AR Economic Impact
Increase in school districts transportation budget due to forced busing.
Loss of tax base due to “white flight” and increased enrollment in private schools by white students who did not want to attend integrated schools. Why not remain separate but truly equal? Many older members of the African American community believe that forced integration was detrimental to the African American community in many ways. Rather than force schools to integrate, many believe the better solution would have been to leave the schools segregation but provide equal resources for all schools.
Desegregating schools was not the answer to social problems in the 1960’s

Black-White Test Scores: Neighborhoods, Not Schools, Matter Most
The authors also attempt to distinguish between the effects of residential and school segregation. Considered separately, each appears to have a negative effect on the relative test scores and educational attainment of blacks students. In statistical models that include both school and neighborhood segregation, though, the effects of relative exposure of black and Hispanic students to their white schoolmates are "uniformly small and statistically insignificant." Although the authors acknowledge that the data could be consistent with equally negative effects of neighborhood and of school segregation, they write that, "Our tentative conclusion is that the neighborhood composition matters more than school composition."

These results -- both the negative effects of segregation, and the indication that neighborhood segregation matters more than does school segregation -- stand up in the face of a variety of statistical tests designed to rule out competing explanations. The segregation effects do not appear to be attributable to differential family background characteristics of black students living in more- and less-segregated cities, nor to resource differences between students' schools.

One potential explanation for the apparent lack of a school segregation effect is the prevalence of within-school segregation: if black students rarely attend class with white students even in cities with integrated schools, these cities may not post higher black test scores even though truly integrated education would have a positive effect. Indeed, the authors find a strong relationship between school integration and at least one proxy for classroom-level exposure: white students are more likely to take honors and advanced placement classes, which typically have few black students, in cities where the schools are integrated than in cities where schools are segregated. Although the authors have no way of measuring direct interactions between students of different races at school, this result suggests that school integration may not achieve high exposure rates of black to white students, potentially accounting for the lack of an integration effect on black students' test scores

"I don't think they wanted money ? ," Williams-Bolar said. "They wanted me to be an example."

Presiding Judge Patricia Cosgrove acknowledged as much.
"I felt that some punishment or deterrent was needed for other individuals who might think to defraud the various school districts," Cosgrove said. "The Statements" Ruling paved the way for Integration
