From the Courtroom to the Classroom: The Shifting Landscape of School Desegregation by Claire E. Smrekar

From the Courtroom to the Classroom examines recent developments pertaining to school desegregation in the United States.

As the editors note, it comes at a time marked by a “general downplaying of race and ethnicity as criteria for the allocation of public resources, as well as a weakening of the political forces that support busing to achieve racial integration.” The book fills a growing need for a full-scale assessment of this recent history and its effect on schools, children, and communities.
