1. What is de facto segregation? De jure
  segregation? What was the solution?
• De Facto Segregation is racial
  segregation that occurs because of past
  social and economic conditions and
  residential patterns.
• De Jure Segregation is racial segregation
  that occurs because of laws or
  administrative decisions by public
  agencies.
• The solution was busing—transporting
  some African American schoolchildren to
  white schools and some white
  schoolchildren to African American
  schools.
2. Where in the north did you find violent
  reaction to busing?
• South Boston—where African American
  students were bused into blue-collar Irish
  Catholic neighborhoods.
3. By the mid-1970’s, what percentage of
  African Americans opposed busing?
  Whites?
• 50% of African Americans opposed
  busing.

4. What did the Court rule in:
   A) Reddick v. Sch. Bd. Of City of Norfolk
   B) Board of Educ. v. Dowell (1991)
   C) Freeman v. Pitts (1992)
   D) Missouri v. Jenkins (1995)
• The Norfolk case allowed the city to end 15
  years of court-ordered busing of elementary
  schoolchildren.
• In the Dowell case, the Supreme Court
  instructed a lower court administering a
  desegregation decree that if school racial
  concentration was a product of residential
  segregation that resulted from “private decision
  making and economics,” its effects may be
  ignored entirely.
• In the Pitts case, the Supreme Court also
  stressed the importance of “local control
  over the education of children.”
• In the Jenkins case, the Court ruled that
  the state of Missouri could stop spending
  money to attract a multiracial student body
  in urban school districts through major
  educational improvements.

  become increasingly unwilling to uphold
  race-conscious policies designed to further
  school integration and diversity.
6. Had forced integration helped African
  American children improve educational
  resources and achievement?
• NO. Whites have fled the cities to the
  suburbs leaving one out of every three
  minorities attending schools with 90%
  minority enrollment.
7. What goal replaced that of the Brown
  case? What is the better indicator of poor
  academic achievement than race?
• The goal of better-educated children, even

  in which race is not considered.

10. Where and when was one of the most
  violence-plagued protests? What
  happened? What law was passed as a
  result?
• It occurred in Birmingham, Alabama, in the
  spring of 1963, when Police Commissioner
  Eugene “Bull” Connor unleashed police
  dogs and used electric cattle prods against
  protesters who were provoking a reaction
  by local officials so that the federal
  government would act.
• The result of the media event was the
